Guys, hello again. I’ve tried to do the same thing on my 2nd machine. Both have Ubuntu 18.04 as a main system. Both have i7 but different generation first i7-7770 second i7 - 3610. First have integrated graphic card, second have integrated graphic + gtx670m on board. I think the problem is somehow connected to resolution, by the way it works totally fine on VMware. If you need any additional info plz let me know… I’m really interested to get it to work on VBox.

Update guys, I’ve installed it using iso file and it worked perfectly…so the problem was somehow connected with OVA and obviously Ubuntu as a main system…
