    window 7 virtualbox ubuntu 12.10 install issue

    Good Morning,

    I am a complete newbie to linux (48 hours but a white knuckle 48 hours). Have tried installing Ubuntu 12.10 about 6 times using Virtualbox 4.2.6 from a system 7 host and i keep getting the pink "swirl screen" with no menus or application access.

    My host is a new build windows 7 service pack 1
    nvidia geforce gtx 660
    i5-3570k
    64-bit

    Install seems to go well every time with updates, and all. I even get some features when i have the option to try on disk or do a full install. but whichever i choose, i loose those menus and am back to the pink screen with nothing.

    I do get a message that Compiz had to close.

    I am quite exited to get this to boot up and have stuck infront of my computer all weekend, somebody please help.

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Went back and downloaded Ubuntu 12.04.1 from Ubuntu website. Installed it and it seems to be working now.
