Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have cloned a VirtualBox machine, which runs Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit as Guest OS.

I now wish to transfer it to a new host machine running Windows Vista 32-bit. I’ve transferred the .vdi file and adjusted the name and memory. However when I boot it, the options to choose the Linux version came up: Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38-10-generic, Linux 2.6.38-10-generic(recovery mode) , Previous Linux versions, Memory test. Once I chose Linux 2.6.38 a black screen just appears with an underscore at the top.

What should I do to get it to run? I don’t have my original machine near me now so I can only work with my .vdi image. My VB is version 4.0.10.

I have tried cloning this VDI and also assigning a new UUID and making a new guest, but I still got the black screen.

Thank you.
