I have installed Ubuntu Server 11.10 in VMmware (Running in a windows 7 machine). Everything went fine for the first time but now i cant start it.

I started Vmware, then it appears the purple ubuntu screen and after then everything goes black with the cursor blinking.

I have tried to re-create the Virtual Machine and the problem remains.

Any ideas?

This is a seeming bug with Ubuntu server. The work around is to change to another virtual terminal (console).

Normally one would Ctrl+alt+F2

With vmware try

CMD + OPT + CTL + F2

If F2 does not work , try F1 or F3
