Question - black screen of death on Virtualbox
Thank you in advance for any help/advice. I'm running Windows XP as a guest in Virtualbox with Xfce as the main OS. I'm interested in figuring out two prblems. The first is that if Virtualbox or the computer itself gets restarted, I get the 'black screen of death' Attachment 4629. With no pointer input or OS. The only workaround has been to use the 'restore snapshot' option which resets the machine. This isn't great but it works. Where the problem occurs is the second issue. That question is how to get VirtualBox to expand beyond 800x600. Attachment 4628.
I went to the Portland linux forums and someone suggested to 'install guest additions' which is fine and good but at the end of installing, it insists on rebooting windows. Which leads to the first problem - the black screen of death
