Ok!! sorry for that!!And I did everything u told me but it the same as before.To add some info about what is going here is some of the things that it is displaying.
Starting Network Manager...
touch: can not touch:/var/lib/sudo :Read-only file system
touch: can not touch:/var/lib/sudo/mic/4 :Read-only file system
touch: can not touch:/var/lib/sudo/mic/3 :Read-only file system
touch: can not touch:/var/lib/sudo/mic/0 :Read-only file system
When it has finally finished booting, I am provided only with a TTY. I can log in and cat my files, but I cannot write to any files or use any programs.
What you discribed above is how you've installed Virtualbox? But isn't this a very old version? and now you're running a recent version of Ubuntu on this old vbox-version? Well, it's most likely that this doesn't work.
What's your host operatingsystem? also Ubuntu? which version?
Well, 11,0 seems ok, but the recent version of Virtualbox is 4.2.6 and you have 1.somewhat.....
I would recommend that you upgrade virtualbox at first to the recent version. Afterwards you can try to find out what's gone wrong. But why do you install Ubuntu as a virtual machine on Ubuntu? And the threadtitle says something about dualboot?
mh, please explain what you want to achieve. You have Ubuntu 11 installed on your computer, and you have tried to installed Ubuntu 12.10 on Virtualbox. And what do you mean with "I just didn't want to mess up my main system...."? messing up while doing what?
i want to make my main system two have two kernels.It has to boot with both kernels using kernel.It is part of my OS assignment.So I thought i will practice doing so until i get it right then do it on my main system.Well i used ubuntu 12.04 because it was now available for me.So did u get me now????
