    so i'm running win7 x64

    i tried with VMware 12 (coz newer versions dont work on win7)
    i tried with newest vbox
    then i tried with 5.2 series of vbox
    then i tried with 4.3 series of vbox
    ---

    NONE of these allow me to "boot" to desktop, and by this i mean, the installation finishes
    and when you restart to do 1st boot/run/login on desk,
    all i get is infinite black screen of nothing just waiting

    with following:

    latest kubuntu
    latest kde plasma
    latest manjaro xfce
    latest mint cinamon
    -
    tried latest Zorin, and that one was only one that actually booted to desktop
    -

    the error is always: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
    searching on web resulted in nothing that fixes issue...

    my specs:

    CPU: QuadCore Athlon II X4 635
    RAM: 8 GB DDR3
    VGA: Leadtek GTX 550 Ti

    and i always had turned of hyper-v / amd-v (or whatever its called)...
