I have VirtualBox 3.0 on top of Windows 7x64 and a copy of Ubuntu server x64 I want to install on it. It will happily boot off the image, ask me to select my installer language and then one of the options (like install sever, repair system and so on). I select "install server" and get a new "choose your language" screen and it won't accept any of my keyboard signals - nothing happens - can't select anything.
I can hit alt-f2 for example to drop into console and it works fine for me - all selections work and so on but the /sbin/debian-installer even if I run it from another console will not respond to key press.
Is there some magic that I need to know about?
