Virtual Box 6.0

Postby chrisgauthier2019 » 24. May 2019, 22:35

I'm trying to install a ubuntu vm on my windows host os.

I have hyper-v installed, but there are many features on hyper-v that make virtualbox a more attractive option for me -- especially the bi-directional clipboard which i could not figure out how to get working in hyperv.

I have this virtual box .exe installed.


I can see all my 64bit VMS and when i click "storage" and select the iso I want (in this case 18.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso) and then try starting it up.

The screen loads a splash screen and then sits there without progressing.

I do have hyper-v installed on the windows 10 host, and I've seen in these forums that that might cause some issues, but Im not 100% sure if that's the case and stopping the hyperv services from running seems like a tricky endeavour.

Can somebody point me in the right direction?

Yes, definitely. Take a look at the sticky post in this Windows Hosts area "VirtualBox 6.0 and Hyper-V". If you want to run with native speed ou'll need to get rid several services. Look in the "Control Panel" » "Programs and Features" » "Turn Windows features on or off", and make sure that the none of the following are active:
  • Application Guard
  • Credential Guard
  • Device Guard
  • <any> * Guard
  • Containers
  • Hyper-V
  • Virtual Machine Platform
  • Windows Hypervisor Platform
  • Windows Sandbox
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.
