    VirtualBox - Install Windows 7 freeze on expading files

    I'm using Kubuntu 12.10. I have the latest version of VirtualBox(4.2.4) with expansions installed and guest addition also. I'm trying to install Windows 7 but it freezes at the second step: expanding files (random percent). I even tried to install Vista but is happening the same thing. Is there a bug? Do you happen to know a workaround? Or at least there is another free virtual machine I can use to install win 7?

    I would try disabling the auto-capture feature first, it tends to cause various problems

    also, are you using a CD/DVD or an iso as your Win7 disc?

    I use an iso.
    Anyway I installed vmware-player and everything worked perfectly. So I guess is another fail for Oracle...
