Install freezes on VirtualBox 4.3 (linux)

Recommended Posts

Tried on 2 different machines running Linux (ubuntu studio 14.04) and VirtualBox 4.3.10 -- one desktop machine with a i3@3.4GHz cpu, 4GB ram (soon to be upgraded to either 12 or 16 gb) and a laptop with a Core 2 duo@2.8GHz,  also 4GB ram. Pretty much followed the guide at


With boot flags -v -x, it hangs with this on the screen for a few minutes:




Then after several minutes the screen goes white, and the mouse "beach ball" stops spinning or responding to mouse movement. From there, i even left it overnight and found it in the same state the next day. (white screen, frozen mouse) Sometimes, it won't go to the white screen but stay on the kernel logs (shown in the screenshot) and the mouse cursor will still spin and respond to mouse movement.


Curious thing is, in both cases i can still ping the IP address which it gets assigned by my DHCP server. So the kernel definitely isn't crashed... but something is going wrong with the installer.


Anyone know what i can do to fix this? I've tried most boot flags that are documented on several web pages, with no different results....



/* EDIT */ Oh, forgot to add - i'm using niresh distro, "mountain lion" 10.8.5, iso filename is "Niresh-OSX-10.8.5.iso"

The above screenshot was from my laptop. Here's the one on my desktop machine:






I also noticed that from the white screen with the frozen mouse cursor, pressing left CTRL key returns me to the kernel logs, with a responsive mouse cursor.

Updated my version of VirtualBox from 4.3.10 to 4.3.20, and also tried in windows 7 on my laptop, all with the exact same results.

UPDATE - I went ahead and downloaded iAtkos instead, it seems to be working just fine.

    • @Niresh i forgot to say that that error was given because i have a Samsung M2 NVMe 960pro. I tried to remove it and it kinda worked but with a lot of bugs even during the installation. I can't remember everything clearly now cause it's been like 4 months ago
    • Thanks. I Have One Ethernet And One Wifi.

    • How many network adapters do you have? Like WiFi or Ethernet? Post output of lspci -nn command
    • Unfortunately i dont have any Option to disable my Grahpic Adapter. Can i disable it in an other way? Like any Boot Flags?   EDIT: I did just an Update for my BIOS but it didn't add any Options to disable my Graphics Adapter
    • This issue is called Discrete Graphics issue of High Sierra, To bypass this you have to disable either Intel HD Graphics 630 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 from BIOS, Check into your BIOS to see if you have any options to disable Graphics, Then try booting Keep me updated
