Laptop Confusing

Yesterday I posted on my Main PC, and game runs but needs probably a newer MB and CPU.
I have a HP Envy 17 xxx Laptop which has
Intel i7-8550U
I guess HP MB
The ram is confusing. Says Total Physical Mem… 11.8 GB
Total Virtual Mem… 13.7 GB
Had no problem with the download on my Desktop PC, but the laptop has been going since last night.
Read to uninstall and start again which I did and it is like Honey flowing uphill…
Any suggestions and maybe a explanation on the RAM thing.

Downloading via WiFi?

no hard wired

Finally it’s been almost 15 minutes on the screen with the grey and white cessna. I remember FSX taking for ever to load.
