Hello,

I am trying to install and run 32 bit Toorox 01.2013 KDE from within Virtual Box. VM is 512mb RAM and 8gb hdd. ISO boots fine and installer seems to work but when I disconnect the ISO from being a virtual CD and try to boot, I get a blank screen forever.

I have tried the boot loader methods MBR and Partition. Neither one works.

Host system details: iMac host 3.1ghz Core i5 4gb RAM Mac OS X 10.8.2 Virtual Box 4.2.6 r82870 Guest VM is 512mb RAM 16mb video 8gb HDD

TIA,
Rick

The installer appears to work. I get a message that the bootloader was installed and then nothing.

I shutdown, disconnect the iso from the CD device, boot again and nothing. Blank screen. No message. Cursor just sits there at top left. I let it stay that way for up to half an hour before killing the VM.

Nothing wrong with the hardware or Virtual Box. Right after I attempted to install Toorox, I had no issues at all installing Bohdi using the same method (iso attached to CD).

TIA,
Rick

hi Rick
i think the installation is not sucessfully finished!
After the message bootloader was installed, the next step is: is trx install on a external drive??
yes or no?
and than comes the message:
trx is sucessfully installed!
Please try it again, wipe the virtual hdd and start the installer!
kind regards

+Thanks

I re-ran changing only the screen output to default and the system is now up and running.

Doing a sync and upgrade.
