http://ask.sagemath.org/question/35997/problem-on-startup-with-illegal-instructions/?answer=35998#post-id-35998Instead of the virtual machine, you might be interested in testing the new SageMath installer for Windows.
It should work with any 64-bit version of Windows 7 and above.
To try it out, use the .exe installer from the most recent item (top in the list) at

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/35997/problem-on-startup-with-illegal-instructions/?comment=40135#post-id-40135I updated the link; the previous link pointed to an alpha version for Sage versions 7.x.
Starting from Sage 8.0, the installer is no longer in alpha stage;
it will aim to keep in sync with releases of Sage.Wed, 13 Dec 2017 06:00:19 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/35997/problem-on-startup-with-illegal-instructions/?comment=40135#post-id-40135Comment by alexia24 for <p>Instead of the virtual machine, you might be interested in testing the new SageMath installer for Windows.</p>
