I have a VM setup in VirtualBox (LinuxMint 17.1). But I'm trying to boot to GParted so I can resize a partition. I'm using gparted-live-0.22.0-2-amd64.iso and it boots correctly. I've tried every option in GRUB as well as the latter menu, but I can't get past this screen:

GParted Won't Start

This screen also appears during boot, before I get to the keymap selection screen:

GParted LiveCD Errors

VM Configuration is here

  • Is this 32bit VM? Have you try with 32bit livecd? – Romeo Ninov May 29 '15 at 14:18
  • 64-bit VM; 64-bit LiveCD. Also tried the i586 ISO. – Josh M. May 29 '15 at 14:18
  • Added VM config. – Josh M. May 29 '15 at 14:21
  • LinuxMint LiveCD boots and starts up fine. Trying to use that instead. – Josh M. May 29 '15 at 14:25
  • That worked fine - so I'm all set. Still would like to know why it wouldn't boot though. – Josh M. May 29 '15 at 14:31

I had the same problem and checked the "Enable EFI (special OSes only)" extended feature and it started working.

VirtualBox VM settings, showing System: EFI enabled

  • Had the same trouble, tried the Enable EFI and it was the same deal. strange thing was that the same image had worked thirty minutes before on a 32-bit VM – JoSSte Oct 3 '15 at 19:09
