  1. I’m trying to install Windows 7 on the VirtualBox to no avail. When I finish the setup, add the .iso file via the Storage tab in Settings*, and run it, I just get a black screen that says:

    FATAL: No bootable medium found! System halted.

    *To add the .iso, I am going to Settings>Storage>Controller:IDE
    I pick the ISO file from my directory and close the dialog box.

    Is anybody else having similar issues? I’m running Mac Lion 10.7.5.
