KB ID 0001715


I upgraded to macOS Big Sur this week, and was surprised everything still worked! That was until I tried to start up my Windows 1o Virtual machine.

“Not enough physical memory is available to power on this virtual machine with its configured settings.”


Though it took me a while to ‘fix’, the fix is quite straight forward, I was running version 11 (see Below).
