Currently I am running Ubuntu 12.04. I want to try other Linux Distributions without fully installing them on my computer, so that's where I found out about VB. I have it installed on my computer, and I chose another Linux Operating system to play around with. Fedora 17. I went to the website, downloaded the 64bit Gnome Fedora 17 iso. The iso looks good. The download was clean.
When I opened up VB, and created a new Virtual Machine, I went through all the steps, created the operating system name, and chose the correct things for that, I gave it 1 GB of RAM. (More than the recommended). I created a Virtual Hard Drive, with the default storage. That's about all they ask for.
Then I started the Virtual Machine. They ask me for the iso I need to run the machine, and of course, I go in my downloads and choose the Fedora 17 iso file. I start the machine, and Fedora starts with it's beginning, you know where it counts down from 10, and says "Press Tab for more boot options"
I leave it alone, and it starts, but this Virtual Machine just stays black. I have no idea what I might have done wrong. Any help will be great. I really wanna get more into Linux, and try different operating systems, and need a bit of help.
Thanks for at least reading this far.
