Ubuntu 13.04 64 bit was not shown at boot time when installed with Window 7 64 bit but Ubuntu 13.04 32 bit has no problem. Is there any memory problem ?

Is it showing any problem, I believe if you have 4GB both can co-exist without any issue.
I have 2 GB RAM + i3 2.40 GHz Processor. Would it be not sufficient ?
I also have 2GB with i3 (windows 8) but my PC is extreme slow so planning to upgrade.

I didn't see the original post, so I don't know what ram you might have mentioned, but Win 7 will run, even if slowly, in 1GB. So will Ubuntu. You really want at least 2--4 is lots better. Ram is so cheap, install 8GB and then don't worry about it anymore, unless you're a *big* gamer. Then you'll have to worry about the video card, also.

If the 64 bit install appeared to go ok but the option to boot into Ubuntu is not shown that is nothing to do with the RAM.

I installed virtualbox from the synaptic package manager and then loaded windows 7 and also installed the extensions pack. For some reason when I plug in usb devices they can't be accessed by the virtual windows 7. Every time it says failed to install drivers for the usb device when I plug in a usb memory stick, or iphone or etc. What can I do to get usb support to work, the usb devices are shown in the lower portion of the virtualbox window but won't work in windows 7.
