Live USB wont boot on Dell M4500

Postby eishv » Thu Mar 28, 2013 8:15 am


Boot process fails. there are a few errors:

Failed to start vboxserver
KVM_genenvv failed
native console 1 activation: device not configured

and I get a command prompt.
If I try startx I get no screens found.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
