TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Unable to get Turnkey Joomla up and running

Hi Everyone

I am unable to get the Turnkey Joomla using Virtualbox up and running. When launching from the Virtualbox it starts to look at the DVD & CD rom to boot and this version of VM 3.1.4 does not allow for selecting the items your instructions is asking for. Please see attached pictures of my screen.

Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.

Firstly a hint re screenshots...

Hey Lars,

Within Windows you can save a screenshot of the current active window to the clipboard by pressing <Alt><Prnt Scrn> (hold Alt, press Print Screen). Then paste it into MS Paint (or similar - I use Paint.NET under Windows) to edit/crop/highlight/add info/shink size (image size and/or file size) etc.

This will make your screenshots easier for others to view (no blurry words) and faster to open (smaller file size).

Anyway back to the job at hand. I am unfamiliar with VBox post v2.x and don't really use it anymore, but hopefully I can be a little useful.

Are you trying to install from VM image (actually no install required as such) or from ISO?

If you are using a VM image, you should be able to just import it and it should just run.If thats the case when does the error occur, while importing or on first boot?

If using ISO, after install has completed you should be able to turn off VM, set to boot from HDD, remove ISO and all good! It shouldn't look for CD/DVD.

Perhaps you could try explaining a little more with maybe some screenshots of the boot process of the appliance (using the method I suggest above)? I found it really hard to read your screenshots, especially the middle one "Boot errors". Also the screen doesn't look familiar, at what point does that occur?
