I think I encountered this issue too, without error logs it's hard to be sure
though, but by the description it sounds a lot like it.
Another user in another Qubes 4 Win7 thread somewhere in Qubes-users mail-list,
suggested to reduce the page-file for Windows SWAP inside the Windows VM. It
worked for him, and when I tried it out, it worked for me too. It's possible
this is what you encounter, try reduce the Windows page-file and see if it
Also if not reducing the page-file, more giving the VM more RAM works too, but
it's a lot of wasting resources, especially on low RAM hardware. For example I
have to give Win7 4GB RAM when I did not change the page-file in Windows. When
it has 3GB or 3.5GB, then it crashes like your description.
Once the page file has been reduced, counter-intuitively the RAM can now be
2.5GB without any crash so far. It seems a bit odd since the page-file SWAP
should only be related to the drive space, but the relation between host VM
allocated RAM, and guest drive SWAP page-file, somehow, indeed seems to be
related to each others... I lack the understanding ,but it seems very
counter-intuitive to me, yet it still worked.
Hopefully this can fix your crash issues.
