Nothing is not happening with the Cloudera quickstar, just a blank,black screen

[ Edited ]

Hi, I am using window 10, CDH 5.7, and getting cloudera quickstart VM with centOS 6.7, and trying to set up cloudera quickstart VM on top of Virtual box. After installing the cloudera quickstart VM, I tried starting the VM. Initial it went through a scrolling process and then the screen turns black and nothing is happening.The quickstart VM is not coming up. The screen is just showing a black blank screen . How do i resolve this issue?  Thanks!

Welcome to the community @DavBro. It could be something simple as the resources allocated to the VM or virtualization not being enabled on the system. Check out our Community Knowledge article on how to set up a Quickstart VM to double check your steps. The commonly reported issues and ways to solve them are listed near the end of the article. 

 

I hope it helps solve your issue. :)

Re: Nothing is not happening with the Cloudera quickstar, just a blank,black screen

Thanks for the info,cjervis! I did it a different way yesterday: I clicked
on the "new bottom" and then followed the info from there,and that's where
I ran into trouble. I deleted the file with the intention of reinstalling
it; I thought that would resolve the issue, but when I tried to reinstall
Cloudera-Quickstart to the VM Virtualbox under the initial way, I'm getting
the followings: accessible,doc,drivers,nls,sdk, and x86, not the full
Cloudera-Quickstart-vm 5.7.0-0...OVF file. I also tried it based on the
instructions we sent me and I am not seeing anything at all. I am new to
this and don't have a lot of experience, so please forgive me if appear
amateurish in my explanation.

Thanks again for your help with this matter!
