Virtual Machines + OpenGL are a know problem (bug) industry wide. AFAIK
we've done all we can and are installing everything needed, and if the
ISO is burnt onto a physical DVD or USB stick and booted from that then
everything works correctly.

not much we can do about it. hopefully a newer version of VirtualBox or
whatever makes this better.
