    Are you logging in as guest?

    ** Be aware that persistence CAN'T be used in VirtualBox.

    I had never heard of virtualbox portable until this thread. Sounds like it's not the tool you need for what you want to do. What exactly do you want to accomplish? Have a portable OS on a flash drive that's persistent? See if this fits your needs:

    Is there any virtualisation software that I can use lubuntu as guest OS and using as persistent?

    Note that I can boot and use it as persistent from USB drive but not virtualizing.

    If you want a lubuntu persistent pen drive: http://askubuntu.com/questions/16824...12-04-live-usb

    Or do you want it to be a virtual machine? If so then why don't you export an .ovi from virtualbox each time you're done. Save it on the pen drive. Then import it into virtualbox the next time you need it.

    Something I made up apparently. Virtualbox creates .ovf files. Here's the documentation on importing & exporting vms:
