BO won't boot in vm

Was going to boot BO in a vm. Gets most of the way through the splash screen and then just hangs.
Virtualbox 4.2.18
Host Ubuntu Server 13.04

Have you checked the md5sum after downloading?

Yep.
Also a little troubleshooting down. The hang is after KDE startsup.

what settings you have in the VM?
if you identified the VM as debian (as it should be) it automatically assigns around 350MB ram for the VM which is too low to load KDE; raise the ram to at least 1GB

And, in case you didn't, make sure you identified the client as being 64-bit. Goofy things happen if you fail to do this. DAMHIK :lol:

Remember that BO is running Apache, and MySql. So, if you can spare the memory, you should do so.
