HDP sandbox requires over 8GB RAM so you cannot run it on your system.

I recommend 16GB virtual machine.

While starting Hortonworks sandbox it gets stuck on "extracting and loading the hortonworks sandbox..." And after some times it shows the message of critical error or sometimes it says "your system has ran into an error we'll restart it"

Minimum 8GB RAM you should have on your 64 bit OS to run the Sandbox without any issue.

Please see the NOTE from our doc: https://hortonworks.com/hadoop-tutorial/learning-the-ropes-of-the-hortonworks-sandbox/

Note: The Sandbox system requirements include that you have a 64 bit OS with at least 8 GB of RAM and enabled BIOS for virtualization. Find out about the newest features, known and resolved issues along with other updates on HDP 2.4 from the release notes. The Sandbox on Azure is under construction and will update to HDP2.5 soon.

As mentioned in my previous comment that in order to run HDP sandbox minimum 8 GB of RAM is needed to be allocated to the Sandbox Instance. (Where as you have total 8 GB of RAM on your machine). NOTE from our doc: https://hortonworks.com/hadoop-tutorial/learning-the-ropes-of-the-hortonworks-sandbox/

- When we try to run the Sandbox with less than 8GB RAM then sometimes (due to other processes on the Windows machine might be consuming some of the RAM) the Sandbox services liek Network service / mount services are not initialized properly and causes a Hung scenario. So some times it might come up after a long time of reboot. and some times it might not even come up, Thats why the Minimum requirement for the HDP Sandbox to have at least 8GB RAM alloted to the Sandbox instance. Which means your Machine/Laptop should have around12-16 GB of RAM so that it can allocate 8GB RAM dedicatedly to the Sandbox.
