Thanks Kari. Guide still does a good job. I had one hiccup. Removing the iso (CD) after the install. Seemed to freeze the reboot. Got around it though & all is good. Think I forced a shutdown of virtualbox then restarted.

I'll confirm what Hipster Doofus wrote. I, too, had the freeze at reboot. I Went to the Machine dropdown and chose Reset. Shortly Ubuntu rebooted and the signin screen appeared.

Thanks a lot guys!!

By the way, right now I have come across this problem. It's been stuck at this screen for more than an hour now. Does that happen? Or should I redo my installation all over again?

The installation can take quite a while depending on your PC and vBox configuration. Does the progress bar still move ??
