Installing Parrot OS on VirtualBox

– Please Write here your help request –

I decided to switch from Kali Linux to Parrot OS. But since yesterday I am trying to install parrot os but once the installation completes it again shows the same options when i try to boot into it,

  1. Try / install
  2. Advanced Mode
  3. Failsafe Mode

I have downloaded the security version of parrot os which is released on Mar 24, 2022 Version 5.0 Electro Ara.

all my other virtual machines are running without any problem.

Please assist.

Thanks in antipation.

Open VirtualBox and click on your Parrot VM
Click on Settings > Storage > Click on the optical drive > Click the blue optical drive disk attributes > Remove Disk from virtual drive.

Now you can boot to your install.
