No, I cannot boot up it in VirtualBox with another copy downloaded, I have to switch to VMWare image(cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.7.0-0-vmware), and run the VM with VMWare Player, it's able to be boot up now. :)
Was this issue resolved after another download or did you make any config changes ?
I am having the same issue:
After the below message:
init: prefdm respawning too fast, stopped
message get out and remain blank (Black) no action going on or not showing any message .
I am having the same issue. I thought maybe it was because my laptop (Dell Vostros) was 7 years old, but I am not sure. I hope the import of the .ovf file works for me. Thank you for this post - it sounds EXACTLY like my own experience. Good luck!
