This question already has an answer here:
I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 32-bit in VirtualBox. Once I installed it in virtualbox, I restarted, and it asked me once again to install. I just closed the window, so it went black and about 5 minutes later it opens up as if I had clicked the "try ubuntu" button. It was also very slow, it took a full minute to respond to any action. Any help this time?
