why is it showing only 7 GB free space?

Re: virtualbox, can't get to work[Resolved]

Well, thanks to everyone here and your patient guidance, it is sorted now. It is annoying how Windows Secure Boot makes headaches even if you don't use Windows. I guess when I reset my UEFI to defaults months ago, it restored that and disabled Intel VM support and on top of having to fix them, I had...

Re: virtualbox, can't get to work

Quick Update: I went back into BIOS/UEFI and chose "other OS" rather than Windows Secure boot and then retried after repairing bootloader, and now it is working as per that link and instructions. Thank you!!!

Re: virtualbox, can't get to work

Thank you for trying to help! I will keep hoping a solution can be found and find out why my bootloader failed and had to be restored.

Re: virtualbox, can't get to work

I had turned off secure boot, it may have been why I had to restore grub?

Re: virtualbox, can't get to work

I noted that I made that mistake I'm sorry. So as it stands, I can now boot on my tower to Mint 20, but I get that error in Virtualbox as stated when attempting to install images of Popos and Windows Or whatever. I had forgotten that virtualization is where to make the thread, my apologies! Does any...

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.
