View Full Version : [ubuntu] VirtualBox crashes when installing Ubuntu

January 26th, 2011, 08:59 PM

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on a VirtualBox inside of Windows XP Pro. I've been following the quality guide at: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/virtualbox
However, when I install Ubuntu inside of the VirtualBox, VirtualBox crashes half-way through copying the files during the installation process (the part where you can page through the slideshow while it copies). I was wondering if you guys had any idea what might be going wrong and whether you think it's an Ubuntu problem or a Virtual Box problem. Thanks!

Oh, well, I'm going to assume this is a VirtualBox + XP problem for now since I was able to install Ubuntu on a VirtualBox + Win7 at home with no problems.
