I downloaded and installed Ubuntu 11.04 server in a VM. The physical hardware config is AMD Phenon II X6 in a Gigabyte motherboard with 8 GB of memory. The host operating system is Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit.
I was able to install Ubuntu and able to log in successfully.
I issued the command sudo shutdown now -P and Ubuntu shut down successfully. But when I try to start the VM again, it just came up to a blank screen. I waited for 1 hour thinking that it might be updating itself but nothing happened.
Is this version of Ubuntu already stable or did I miss something during the install process?
One thing I forgot to mention is that I am new to Ubuntu and Linux.
