I have a PC with Windows 8 4GB RAM 500GB HD and use Virtualbox 4.2.18 (current), however, already downloaded several types of isos of Ubuntu to virtualize and none of them got success. It takes forever to install and when it says that the machine needs to be rebooted to start using Ubuntu a message: virtualbox-O stopped working windows searching for a solution to this problem... and finally lose everything and does not install anything. Already downloaded several isos and also already tested in other versions of virtualbox and nothing's right. What can I do? What is the solution? Isos used: 12:04, 12:10, 13:04.

    sudo apt-get install dkms virtualbox-guest-dkms virualbox-guest-x11 virtualbox-guest-utils
