Unable to Start HDP 2.6.4 Sandbox in VirtualBox 5.2.6

Unable to Start HDP 2.6.4 Sandbox in VirtualBox 5.2.6

When I try to start HDP 2.6.4 in VirtualBox 5.2.6, the output seems to get about as far as "Started Network Manager Script Dispatcher Service" (see attachment)... and then I just get a blank/black screen. Then nada after that.

Looking at other posts for possible troubleshooting ideas, the RAM available in my VM is about 10GB. (A co-worker has been able to run a similar configuration with only 4GB.) My laptop is running Windows 7. I've double-checked and confirmed that virtualization has been enabled in the BIOS. I have two network adapters (matching my co-worker's configuration) with Adapter 1 as NAT and Adapter 2 as Bridged.

Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated!
