VirtualBox booting QuickStart VM for CDH 5.4.x takes over 10 minutes to boot

New Contributor

I am a Coursera student running ‘QuickStart VMs for CDH 5.4.x’ on Oracle VirtualBox Version 5.1.28 r117968 (Qt5.6.2) on a Windows 10 laptop (Dell Precision M4700 with 20 GB RAM, i7-3740QM, and tons of disk space, NVIDIA Quadro K2000M). I am trying to open the virtual machine ‘QuickStart VMs for CDH 5.4.x’ that was downloaded using the link provided by Coursera and configured as follows:

 

System / Motherboard

 

10 GB RAM

ICH9 Chipset

Enable I/O APIC

 

System/Processor

Processors: 2

Execution Cap: 100%

Enable PAE/NX

 

System/Acceleration

Paravirtualization: Legacy

Enable VT-x/AMD-V

Enable Nested Paging

 

Display/Screen

Video Memory: 128 MB

Monitor Count: 1

Scale Factor: 120%

Enable 3D Acceleration

 

When I attempt to “play the virtual machine” it takes 10-20 minutes to just boot up the image.  Any suggestions?
