debian guest install stalls on vbox win 7 host

Reported by: mitenm Owned by:
Priority: major Component: installer
Version: VirtualBox 3.2.8 Keywords: debian install stalls hangs
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: other



After scanning mirror the install presents the packages menu from which I choose Desktop Environment, Laptop and Standard System. Then on next screen of "Select and Install software" the install stalls. I tried both NAT and Bridged Network modes. What I don't understand is that mirror is scanned fine for APT setup but it stalls after wards during install.

This is on Sony Vaio netbook with win 7 starter host os. Debian is using netinst.

Hmm, how long did you wait? Were you able to properly poweroff the VM or did you kill the process?

comment:2 Changed 8 years ago by mitenm


I would wait for hours but it would not proceed. I was able to then stop it using the vbox gui actions like stop vm or so. I did not have to kill the vbox process itself.

Still relevant with VBox 4.0.4?
