No. Infact I just installed Win 10 in VM yesterday, How big is your Virtual machine space?

What error(s) do you get?

 

Since you can install XP/7 I believe you know how to use VirtualBox but...

Video Tutorial : How To install Windows 10 in VirtualBox

The host is Windows but the settings in VirtualBox should be likewise.

 

Anything you do differently?

It's a Windows error mostly related to a corrupt OS or bad hardware...

 

Could be a bad ISO used for the install ? Or bad settings in VirtualBox ?

Can you compare your settings in VirtualBox with the ones I used in the video above ?

I used the same iso to install the OS i am currently running - windows 10 64bit pro

 

All is well and it installs just fine inside a windows environment inside virtual box.

 

But in ubuntu it will not run inside virtual box

When you created the ISO, Did you use the media creation tool or did you download the ISO it self and then burn it to DVD?

Since you say it's Ubuntu specific...

Could be a permission issue, try to run VirtualBox as root.

 

Also make sure you have the latest version of VirtualBox installed.

Is it possible to copy the VM that works in Windows to Ubuntu?

I've done it with VMWare, but I don't use VirtualBox so much.  Might be worth a try..

Yes it is possible to copy the VirtualBox VM from Windows to Ubuntu. You need to copy the entire folder for the VM you want to move to Ubuntu. Please follow the following steps to accomplish this:

 

  1. Copy the virtual hard drive from Windows to a flash drive
  2. On the Ubuntu machine, open terminal and enter sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install virtualbox
  3. Copy your VM folder from your flash drive to /home/user/VirtualBox VMs/
  4. Open VirtualBox (Applications, Accessories, VirtualBox)
  5. Click Machine
  6. Click Add
  7. Select the vbox file for the VM you just copied to /home/user/VirtualBox VMs/
  8. Follow the prompts to finish the import

When you are done with that you may need to update the configuration of your VM. Make sure that the proper processor architecture is selected from the Version dropdown on the Basic page located on the General tab of your settings.

 

If prompted make sure that you also install the VirtualBox extensions pack when you run apt-get. If you don't see it or it doesn't install, don't worry you can always go back and install it later.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Not saying that what packetanalyzer suggested is not working (it should work) but I think the proper way of moving VM's, certainly between Windows and Linux/Ubuntu is as follows.

 

In your Windows VirtualBox choose "File" "Export Appliance" and in Ubuntu choose "File" "Import Appliance" and point it to the one you just created in Windows.

I use this method to backup my VM's.  :wink:
