I've got some issue during installation of Linux on Virtualbox. I tried install a few different versions of distos (like Elementary, Mint) and repeadetly I getting error 30 read-only file system. Live versions works fine but I would prefer installed one. I'm using newest version of Virtualbox for macOS High Sierra. Have you guys have some tip how to resolve this problem? Maybe I do something wrong while setting up VM?

My VM configuration: type: Linux, version: Other Linux 64-bit, with Virtual Drive (VDI, dynamically allocated)


I've solve this problem by changing configuration to Linux, Ubuntu 64-bit and dynamically allocated VHD.
