cannot install fedora 19 on virtualbox 4.3.2


I have been trying to install Fedora 19 on virtualbox 4.3.2. I could not find genuine iso for fedora 13 so I decided to go with freshest version of the both (virtualbox and the fedora). For some reason fedora 19 would not boot up on my virtualbox 3.2.8.

this is my system specs:

6.00 GB Ram
64-bit
intel core i7-2630QM cpu @ 2.00ghz

what kind of iso should I chose during the installation process. please help, i have been struggling for a day already now.

Can you describe the exact sequence of events (including any error messages) when you try to boot Fedora?

VirtualBox wiki suggests that Fedora 19 is not supported as a "guest" OS: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Guest_OSes

I do not know whether there is some technological reason why Fedora 19 is not listed, or if simply the list hasn't been updated in a while.

Anyhow, the list in that link may give you some ideas of other "guests" you can try, if you don't have success with Fedora. Good luck!

Did you assign 1G or more to the VM?

Did you test your downloaded ISO?

Did you enable vt support in the host's bios?


What OS is the host running?

Isn't Fedora 20 out?

For the time being can someone suggest me the working link to download ISO for fedora 13 for above mentioned specs (lot of links on the web doesn't work). I don't know if I need i386 one or i686 and also does 32 bit installation work on 64 bit system. I will detail the installation process of my virtualbox and fedora19 later. Thanks

What is the host OS, including whether it's 32 or 64 bit?
Are you trying to install 64 bit or 32 bit fedora 19?
Is VirtualBox 4.3.2 the latest version for your host OS (for Debian it's 4.3.4-91027)?
I'm running Fedora 19 64 bit as a guest on my 64 bit Debian Sid install with only a couple of graphics glitches (which could easily be my desktop set-up and not VirtualBox related) as problems.
Edit: Not sure if it's applicable to your hardware but do you have virtualisation enabled in your BIOS?

You are being asked to provide an optical disk or a .iso file which contains the installer for the operating system you want to install. You seem to be telling VirtualBox to use the newly created virtual hard drive for this which will never work. Instead point the installer at the .iso file of Fedora 19 you downloaded.

It looks like the .iso you downloaded is incomplete or corrupt. You could try checking the MD5 sum to confirm this but I'm afraid I have no idea how that is done under Windows. I'd be tempted just to re-download the .iso file.
