Ubuntu stuck on bootscreen loading forever

Postby Yukon » 17. Jul 2019, 17:43

It usually works just fine, I use snapshots a lot, but when I need to reboot it gets stuck on the loading screen with the dots animation and purple background. I'm kinda new to this so it might be a simple error.

Tried with both 3D acceleration on/off, enabling/disabling PAE/NX, Paravirtualization Interface is set to default, added 1/2 processors. Commands like Esc or ctrl+alt+f1/f2 don't seem to do anything either. Logs attached.

Anyone have any idea why it does that? Thanks in advance

Your log starts with a "resume" from a saved state and ends half-way, while the VM is still running. 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.

Sorry about that! Here it is, started the machine, waited a while then closed it and picked up the logs
