    Freezing on trying to create a ubuntu VM

    I'm trying to create a VM using Virtual Box using ubunto iso and freezing on Who Are You screen. Continue button is greyed out and I'm not able to enter my name, username and password. The cursor doesn't appear in the box after repeated clicking there and I cannot type by information.

    I installed it but it still doesn't accept any keyboard input on Who Are You screen. I can use Back button only.

    It is Windows 10 Home. I'm trying to copy and Paste now with bidirectional copyboard turned on.

    If you can do that you can also type directly regardless of the cursor being visible or not.

    I believe this was a memory issue. I allocated only the recommended 1024 MB but should have been more. Worled with 2048. It doesn't freeze anymore.
