Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have installed VMWare Workstation 7.1.4 on a Intel Core 2 Duo Machine running on Windows 7 OS.

I downloaded the DVD image ubuntu-11.04-dvd-i386 from the ubuntu website and installed it on the VMWare workstation.

Gave all the default parameters for Hard Disk space allocation (20 GB) Memory (1 GB) etc. in VMware.

After the installation finished, the ubuntu terminal came on showing:

"

Ubuntu 11.04 ubuntu tty5

ubuntu login:

"

Irrespective of whatever I do, I am unable to make it boot up in the GUI mode.

Please help. It will be greatly appreciated.
