Grey Screen during Install Of CentOS on VirtualBox

Post by dreafizz » 2019/05/19 03:41:58

I am trying to Install CentOS 7 on a VirtualBox for the first time on My HP Pavillion running Windows 10 home. I have Already ensured that the Bios Enabled Virtualization so that proper installation could occur as that was an original setback. Now it seems I am all ready to go, but whenever I go to actually start the Install I get stuck on a grey screen and it will go no further. Here is what I have done so far:
Created a new virtual machine with the following settings:

Name: CentoOS 7
Type: Linux
Version: Red Hat (64-bit)
Memory Size: I chose 2048MB
Hard Disk: VDI, Dynamically Allocated, Size – 20GB

Added the ISO Image to My New Virtual Machine

Went to start install...and bam Grey screen of foreverness! :cry:
