VirtualBox – Fix 16.04 Live CD Screen Resolution Problem


I'm not sure if its me, but I have some problems with the 16.04 live CDs. See for yourself (using VirtualBox):

Ubuntu 16.04 starting
Ubuntu 16.04 install screen

VirtualBox settings:
Base Memory: 3000MB
Processors: 1
Video Memory: 128MB
No 3D Acceleration enabled.

The strange thing is that I tried Kubuntu 16.04 live CD on a HP Touchsmart 14 laptop and the same thing happened. It didn't happen with Xubuntu 16.04 (same laptop). What can be the problem?

To fix this press right ctrl+f2 to go into TTY then you can switch back with right ctrl+f1, this sorts the resolution problem.
