Ubuntu: install Ubuntu 14 on virtual box


I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.10 desktop on virtual box but it is crashing when live cd start booting up.

My host is Ubuntu 12.04 and virtual machine 4.1.12_ubuntu r77245.

I need to install Ubuntu 14.10 on the virtual Box running on Ubuntu 12.04.


Yes I have tried and It will work.

There is a known issue with VirtualBox and the Ubuntu 8.04 and later Server releases. The server release requires the PAE extension to be available on the virtual processor presented by VirtualBox to the guest OS. PAE support on the virtual processor is available in VirtualBox, but must be enabled on a per processor basis.

This is done either through the GUI,

Vm's Settings > General Section > Advanced Tab > Enable PAE/NX or with the command

VBoxManage modifyvm -pae on This article is also valid for Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex

Virtual Box 4.1.12-Ubuntu-r77245 on Ubuntu 1204 64b Desktop The settings to enable PAE/NX can be found in:- VM Settings > System Section > Processor Tab > Extended Feature: Enable PAE/NX

64 bit guests A 64 bit host CPU is not enough to run 64 bit guests (in contrast to VMWare). The host must also be running a 64-bit OS and have hardware virtualization extensions enabled in the mainboard BIOS.
