I'm trying to get the Unity interface up and running in a Vbox guest system. I can install Natty OK, but it immediately says "you do not have the hardware required to run Unity, use Classic instead". I've installed guest additions, but that doesn't make any difference.

Anyone have any experience with this?

Which version of VirutalBox did you install? VirtualBox 4.0 supports Unity I think.

Had you enabled 3D acceleration on your guest seetings (also you need to give enough ram to video)
