I am trying to boot Ubuntu 13.04 in VirtualBox, but every time I boot, I get an error that says:
SMBus base address uninitialized - upgrade BIOS or use force_addr=0xaddr
This happens right after I start the virtual machine, and the operating system does not even start properly. I see the error, then the screen just goes black and gives me a blinking cursor. The solutions I have found online tell me to open up a terminal only after the OS boots correctly. Sadly, I cannot even get to that stage, so I can't use that solution.
By the way, I am VERY new to Virtual Box and creating virtual machines, so excuse me if I'm not familiar with some of the terminology. Another thing, if it helps, is that I'm running Windows 7 as my host OS.
