Do you have a 64 bit host system and is the Vbox application set to use a 64 bit kernel?

Can't hurt to test md5 of iso. Did you actually create a dvd? Use iso instead.

Be sure there is enough ram.


Confused on 3D.

My desktop is 64 bit , I could not find how to check if the Vbox is 64 bit or not , but I think it should be 64 bit .
