Re: virtualbox, can't get to work

I did get it to boot now, but it's not finding the bootloader or something. I had changed my BIOS to turn off secure boot and enabled intel virtualization. ASUS Z97 motherboard.

How do I repair my bootloader while booted in?

Re: virtualbox, can't get to work

It says virtualbox kernal drivers not installed. I had even tried the VB version in the software manager first and then uninstalled it just in case when it didn't work.

virtualbox, can't get to work[Resolved]

I installed the 6.1 version of Virtualbox and it installed successfully. When I try and set up a virtual install of another OS, such as popos, it won't run it when I'm done. I've watched several videos and I don't see anything I'm doing wrong, but I get errors and the vb won't install.

Re: So maybe there is something to this with version 20?

I have firewall enabled, but your procedure seems wrong and I can find cups or avahi or the other in the list.

Re: So maybe there is something to this with version 20?

Ah, well that tells me a lot of what I was wondering and thinking. I will tear down both systems in the coming days and do a major dusting just to make sure. Right now the tower is showing 42 degrees up to 45, with my AC running and it cool in here. I was running cooler before, but turning off those...

Re: A number of sites are now complaining about firefox, why?

No VPN, but I had user agent switcher installed already and it may have been running as chrome. I'll get back to you guys if that resolved it, I had thought that I had user agent switcher turned off, but it wasn't.

Re: So maybe there is something to this with version 20?

Did all that but the Comp Sci thing. Nope, I gave up on college after having funding problems. I started taking classes a few years ago, but I'm 62 now and have poor health and no money, so school isn't possible. If it's way above my head, I guess I couldn't do it, but I could certainly true.

Re: So maybe there is something to this with version 20?

Also, there is a reason I am paranoid. One of my cards got hacked and there are two other possibilities, that the card was skimmed or that the provider was hacked. I think the card had been skimmed.

Re: So maybe there is something to this with version 20?

How much network activity should there be with the browsers and all windows closed? I imagine some since the OS checks for updates?

Re: So maybe there is something to this with version 20?

Ok, I found that the ISO I had downloaded was still on a storage drive, the one I'm pretty sure I used. I checked it, and it has integrity. So I guess it wasn't hacked.
