  • New install of VB2.4 hangs on first reboot

    I'm building a second VB2.4 machine (will upgrade to 2.5 thereafter). Details as follows:
    • Boot from CD
    • Install runs fine until after the dialogue to shutdown, reboot or redo the install
    • I remove the CD and select reboot
    • Then at the message [info] Will now restart the system hangs
    • I force the shutdown via teh power button and when I switch on again there's a message about selecting a proper boot device meaning the installation process must have not completed properly
    • I'm using an Acer XC-603 with a 4TB drive
    Any ideas?

    If you reboot and wait there might be a prompt to then eject CD. Many Linux systems do that. Ejecting the CD before rebooting may break communication of the OS to the CD.

      The prompt appears with the options shutdown, reboot, cmd line and start over. I select reboot, a few commands appear, the CD tray opens automatically while the message .... Caching reboot files or similar appears. I remove the CD and press enter and then it hangs

      Could this be a BIOS issue?

      From memory I used the same CD on a Dell OptiPlex without any problems

        Not sure what is happening as I installed 2.4 a while back. Perhaps this info helps
