Can't start Sandbox 2.6.1

New Contributor

I've downloaded and installed Oracle VB 5.1.26
I've downloaded HDP_2.6_1_docker_virtualbox_28_07_2017_15_12_53_hdp__ambari_

I start SandBox and see "OS chooser" (see screen)

Which OS should I to choose ?

"CentOS Linux (4.12.4 ....)" works well for me. So far i did not face any issue while running this Sandbox 2.6.1 . I did not try the other CentOS 3.x version .

There is no need to select anything on that screen as the bootloader will automatically select the first kernel which is the correct choice.

Thanks for pointing this out, we will adapt future boxes so that that screen is not visible to create any further confusion.
