I am trying to install fedora 19 beta TC3 (lxde spin), iso image from here:


I have virtualbox running in my Lubuntu 13.04 raring ringtail. When trying to install there, just after saying "install", it stops with message:

tsc:  fast TSC calibration failed

(this also happened with earlier images, like alpha and beta TC2)

What am I doing wrong?
