Hi All

Trying to use virtual machine manager to install a windows 7 guest, and 
getting stalled at the "Setup is starting" screen (just after the first 
screen where you choose your language/keyboard/etc). The cursor spins, 
but it never moves on.

I noticed that when I created the virtual machine, there is no option 
for windows 7 in the operating system dropdown; it only goes up to 
windows vista. Not sure if this makes a difference or not. I've tried 
both Windows Vista and the default.

If it matters, my host machine is running Ubuntu 9.10.

Any thoughts / places I can trouble shoot?
