    Are you sure your vdisk is large enough? running out of space comes with very odd behaviour.

    Yes, I boot Linux from ISO file. I have enough space on disk. I created 8GB disk.
    Should I try some other distribution? I only need to run Apache on Linux in VirtualBox for school project.

    It didn't help. Probably I'm not (yet) that good in text-based interface...

    Did you then select the install option? And do you boot without the iso mounted?

    I don't remember that I had "install" option.
    Yes, I boot without iso mounted.

    I'm still unable to replicate this. In order to rule out a full disk run the following command
    Code:
    df -h
    which will produce output similar to
    Code:
    Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    rootfs           39G   11G   26G  30% /
    udev             10M     0   10M   0% /dev
    tmpfs           1.6G  760K  1.6G   1% /run
    /dev/sda1        39G   11G   26G  30% /
    tmpfs           5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
    tmpfs           3.4G     0  3.4G   0% /run/shm
    /dev/sda3       878G   99G  735G  12% /home/elija/Documents
    /dev/sdc1       1.4T  1.1T  265G  80% /media/external
    tmpfs           1.0G  292K  1.0G   1% /tmp
    The initially interesting bit is use %
