Could someone please explain to me how to create a linux guest on OS X host? When I create a VM (Ununtu) after start up it just gives some error messages and leave the VM.

Thanks Artimess

1 Answer 1

Did you download an ISO to install? Typically download a CD-ROM image of the distro you want, then you mount the CD via the Storage tab, and finally boot the VM. Then just install it.

The installation goes fine, but when I run VM VirtalBox exits! –  artimess Aug 26 '10 at 20:12
    
Did you try restarting it? –  digitxp Aug 26 '10 at 22:35
