[Solved] Antergos will not start the live environment to install it in VBox

Postby an0n1mous » 11. Feb 2019, 13:28

Hello

I could not start “Start Antergos Live” to install it in Virtualbox.

Crazy is, that I could do it in the past. I had no problems with the installation. And I did not change any configurations. Everything is identical.

I could imagine, that the iso 19.2 is the problem, because with earlier iso’s I had no problems. But I haven’t already older iso’ s and I only want to download iso’s on antergos-site, also from the original and safe source.

Does the community or the software engineers now this problem? When does 19.3 will come or what could I do run Antergos in VBox, like I did it before…? :-(

I have this problem with a
-HP Workstation Z210
AND (!) (-> this shows me, that the iso is the problem)
-ThinkPad T530

Other Linux-Distributions, like Manjaro, work also today with VBox, but not Antergos (-> this shows me, that the antergos-iso is the problem).

Thanks to everybody!

…sorry, for my bad english, my german would be better. :-(

You mean that you had created a VM around a Live Antergos? Or you mean your physical computer's configuration?

Just on a hunch, before you launch it, go to the VM Settings » Display. Set the VRAM to 128 MB, the vGPU to VBoxVGA and disable the 3D acceleration. Try it again...

If that doesn't work, we need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.

Dear socratis,
you made my day. I don't know why, but the adjustment vGPU to VBoxVGA was the solution for my problem.

I thank you very much!!!

VMSVGA (and VBoxSVGA) are the two new options for a virtual GPU in VirtualBox. They have a stronger foundation for future expansion, but they are in their first release and still have some implementation issues to work out. That's why I suggested the older, trusted VBoxVGA.

Glad you got it going, marking as [Solved].
