Kali-Linux in VirtualBox -- Reboot Failed after Installation?


So guys, I'm rather new at this, but I'm finding Linux very interesting and fun to learn about. I was trying to run Kali-Linux as a virtual machine using Oracle VirtualBox, and I got to the part where it asks you if you would like to install the GRUB Boot loader. I chose yes, then it starts "finishing the installation." I believe it is running "remove-live-packages" at this point. It starts to reboot, then it gets to the point where it says "Decompressing Linux..." Then, I get an error message explaining how to pull up the log.

I'm not entirely sure if this is the right forum to go to with this problem, but I'm hoping you guys can point me in the right direction, if it's not. Anyways, here's the log. (The log is WAY larger than the character limit, so I just stuck as much of the end as I could on here. Is there a better way to do it?)

The end makes me think there's something weird going on with VirtualBox, but I'm not sure.

And here's what the screen looked like right before it happened.

Have you gone over the kali documentation and through the forum ?
http://forums.kali.org/

And did you see the developers warning ?
http://docs.kali.org/introduction/sh...use-kali-linux

Is Kali Linux Right For You?

As the distribution developers, one would likely expect us to recommend that everyone use Kali Linux. The fact of the matter is however, that Kali is a Linux distribution specifically geared towards professional penetration testing and security auditing and as such, it is NOT a recommended distribution for those unfamiliar with Linux.

In addition, misuse of security tools within your network, particularly without permission, may cause irreparable damage and result in significant consequences.

Hi Josh1313, to fix the issue, you need only to go to the settings of your Kali VM --> system --> processor --> check Enable PAE/NX
If it does not work, try enabling/disabling other options in Motherboard.

For Josh VV, you were not helpful with your rude post.

*necromancer chanting*

Since I ran into this problem too, and the OP didn't respond or label this "Solved", I will. This solution worked for me.

(If it matters, I don't think Josh was rude, but unhelpful, yes. I need this for class.)

I loaded up Kali in a VM just for grins and giggles and it failed after reboot because VirtualBox's default 8 GB HDD for Linux was not enough to accommodate Kali and all the included tools. There was a quick boot message just before failure to the effect that there wasn't enough space; I caught the message on the second try.

I removed the VM, increased the virtual HDD size to 12 GB, and it ran fine. The actual size of the dynamic *.vdi file is slightly over 8 GB.
