For anyone getting errors and guru meditation, make sure you have 5.0 version of virtual box. Later versions like 5.1 does not work.

My PC is AMD Phenom II X4 925 machine with 8GB RAM and Windows 7 Ultimate. I have followed all the above steps and re-checked multiple times and still cannot go past the black boot screen. I have also tried VirtualBox 5.1 as well as 4.3 and checked the AMD-V was enabled on the BIOS. Is it that my CPU was simply not supported from installing this?
