Welcome to the forums :D

Did you install Ubuntu in the Virtual Machine via CD? or did you install though a network service?


The CD you booted from was burnt from an ISO from the official Ubuntu site?

been a long time. I come back just wanna mark this thread as solved. :D

the problem was not the installation CD. It was the optical drive. It failed to read any type of CD / DVD.

thanks to damphoud for the quick reply. sorry it takes this long to thank you.
