Hello,

Host memory --> 16 Gb

VM CPU  -->  2 procesors  and  2 cores per procesor , total procesor cores  4

Host CPU -->   AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor   cpu MHz : 4184.276

But never until  I have had problems with this configuration everything the problem has been when updating the version.

A greeting and thanks

If you are using version 16.2.0 or 16.2.1, try installing 16.1.2. The versions 16.2.0 and 16.2.1 seems problematic.

BEFORE you uninstall 16.2.1 and install 16.1.2, make sure the hardware compatibility of your VMs are set at 16.x (not 16.2.x).

From the Menu VM -> Manage -> Change Hardware Compatibility

It might have helped if you had mentioned that it was a version change which seems to have brought the problem.
