Re: Problems with booting and login on Ubuntu 12.10
As far as the performance issue goes, how much of your system resources did you allot to the virtual machine? Out of the box, Ubuntu is pretty resource intensive since the introduction of Unity, and is intended for machines with a good amount of RAM. Double check and make sure you've allotted the proper amount of resources to your virtual machine for it to run smooth.
