Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia (Cinnamon) only running in Software Rendering Mode

Postby Sigurd » 2. Dec 2017, 17:55

Hi,
It's been a while since I last used Virtualbox for Linux Distro's, and on my new computer (HP Spectre x360 with a 7th gen i5) I can't get the VM to run properly.
I've enabled Virtualization in the BIOS, reinstalled Guest Addtitions numerous times with the help of different guides, forum-posts and such.
If I try to enable 3D-acceleration in the VMs settings I can boot the machine and sign in, but VBox won't load the desktop.
The VM currently has 128 MBs of vram, 2 GB ram and 2 CPU's.
If more information is needed I will try my best to gather it.

Any suggestions on how to fix this would be much appreciated.
