Hi, Under Ubuntu 14.04 and same VBox ver. the gateway and workstation boot up OK. I suspect the SSD (its an oldish OCZ Vertex).
I am really sorry to have taken up your time and created unnecessary noise.
I am trying to get away from Ubuntu 14.04 after my T520 touchpad stopped working and their bug tracking triage system appears to be poorly coordinated. There seems to have been dozens of SynPS/2 touchpad regressions going on for years. I mean what is the point in having a laptop if you have to use an external mouse !
If I get a new SSD do you know if Whonix will work OK ?
Also what should I do about these posts ? I am happy for them to be deleted.
