I have just installed latest stable version of Icaros as I am a big fan of Amiga.
I installed this on a virtualbox VM guest OS as unknown OS type, with 32GB disk, and 2GB memory.
I selected AC97 as soundcard
this to see how it Icaros works
starting graphics playing video makes the aros icaros os to freeze, and does not respond to any activities
Welcome to Aros World! While Icaros boots just fine in VirtualBox, the hardware support for it is not the best. I have tried it many times as well in VBox and experienced the same issues.
If you have a machine that supports it, I'd recommend VMware Player or VMware Workstation. Icaros has a better drivers support for VMware hardware virtualization.
Alternatively, you can use QEMU-KVM if VMware is not an option due to unsupported CPU. I am currently using it under Linux Mint with AQemu GUI and it is quite stable. Sound and Network work great, the only component I haven't managed to escape the VESA mode is the video drivers.

I have installed Icaros latest stable version on a virtualbox hosted on windows
I do want to install this on a physical workstation, but want to play around first to see how it works
