So I started playing with Virtualbox, trying to get Ubuntu running in it with Host as Windows 7 64.
So far I have tried everything; downloaded premade VDI, made my own with Ubuntu ISO but somehow it always boot into a blank screen when I boot into installed image. Sometime I was able to boot to login screen but that's as far as I got. Watch a few youtube video too and I did everything per instruction, beside, the process doesn't seem that complicated to begin with.
I must be missing something obvious?! Oh, I also got a 32bit color warning from Ubunto even though I am running 32 bit in my host system already.
Would VMware Player be a better VM to try? Virtualbox is completely free but VMware Player has certain restrictions.

i've had ubuntu and mint running in VMware (player, not workstation) on windows 7, my virtualbox only has a windows 8 vm though, haven't tried ubuntu in it. i think i kept all the defaults except allocating a bit more hd/memory and an extra core. did you change any of the defaults?
