    Virtual Box freezing while installing CentOS

    I am running Ubuntu 11.04 64Bit, with VirtualBox 4.0.4.

    I am trying to install CentOS 5.6 64Bit. After the live CD loads I just get the Blue CentOS background with no options and nothing happening. If I choose boot device with F12 then interupt the LiveCD boot I get the boot options and when I select Boot or Boot (text mode) it just freezes and doesn't do anything.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I would suggest using the later version of Vbox to eliminate potential issues.

    it is 4.1.2

    get the extensions pack also.

    I have CentOS as a VM and runs fine, so you should be good.
