The boot process just stops here (below). I've tried stopping/starting lightdm but it doesn't even stop nor can I pkill it.
I've already ensured that my bios has visualization enabled and have most of the boxes checking in the settings page of VirtualBox.
I've run update, upgrade, and dist-upgrade and tried
dpkg-reconfigure lightdm (no output is displayed at all).
This is a fresh install using the alternate amd64 Ubuntu CD iso.
I noticed that it says
Stopping System V initialization compatibility but not sure if that is good or bad.
Also, if it's relevant, I have an ATI card.
Edit: Unable to open display in any way and
sudo shutdown now fails.
