@ that along with cpus=1 got it going. 


Trackpad, and network not working. I saw mention of those issues posted, about to do my homework to remedy that. 

If you have any tips to fix, greatly appreciated. 


I don't care about Wi-Fi. If I have to use Wifi dongle, that is fine but not necessary. Ethernet is fine. 


It also told me keyboard was not recognized, but it is working as far as I can tell.


thanks again.
