    NUC5i7RYH crashing in ubuntu 14.04


      My boss asked me to set him up with an NUC (current computer locks up with two screens).


      I have gone for



      Kingston HyperX Predator—240 GB SHPM2280P2/240G

      Kingston KVR16LS11/4 4 GB 1600 MHz x 2 ie 8GB memory


      I have installed Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS and fully upgraded it. The NUC Bios appears to be the very latest.


      System is mainly working well, but I have encountered a repeatable crash running Virtualbox 5.03 when trying to import a

      Microsoft Windows 10 + MSEdge test appliance(.ova). The crash seems to cause complete loss of access to the file

      system (the underlying drive appears OK, but the system seems to be running in memory only).


      I have looked in the logs, but cannot see anything related to the crash which I suppose is reasonable given that we lose

      access to the disk.


      I have exploded a different MS .ova (for IE9+ Windows 7) on the NUC and I have exploded the offending .ova on another

      linux box with the same software.


      Any ideas where I should start trying to figure this out?
