I am trying to install Fedora 23 on VirtualBox running on Windows 10 host. I am using
Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64-23-10.iso to install.
- RAM allocated: 4096 MB
- HDD allocated: 64 GB, Fixed
- Processors allocated: 2, PAE/NX selected
- Display memory allocated: 128 MB (full)
- 3D Acceleration: Enabled
- OS Selected: Fedora 23 64-bit
- VirtualBox version: 4.3
Host machine Configuration
- Intel firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz, 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Onboard Intel graphics
Problem: During installation it shows the screen where you have to select between
Install to hard drive and
start fedora. Right at that screen I get Oh no! Something has gone wrong message. Even if I exhibit lightning reflexes and select any of the options, this error is the end result.
I can press
F2 to launch a terminal. But again I am clueless here.
P.S.: Sometimes, only some time, a smaller frame overlaps this message. This frame is like a peep hole to installation process. Lot of scrolling in all directions helps install Fedora, but this error appears on reboot.
What other information can I provide?
The same configuration works flawlessly on a colleague's computer. Only he has alloted 12 MB as video memory without acceleration of any kind. I made those same changes with no effect.
EDIT 2: My colleague is running his virtualbox on Windows 8.1 (Mine is Windows 10). I believe this may be a cause of the said error.
