Hi, I am installing Fedora image (Fedora-Workstation-netinst-x86_64-27-1.6) as virtualbox image in windows 10 home. After the installation procedure completes it enters a colored screen saying configuring with ansi like art screens.

I would like to know if this is expected, or some issue might be happening. I did the same procedures in Mac OSX and no issues occurred.

The Fedora Workstation live media image includes extra packages for running in virtualized environments. Fedora Workstation installs the guest-desktop-agents group (dnf install @guest-desktop-agents) which is an optional package group in the custom/minimal installer unless you choose to install the full Workstation edition (@workstation-product-environment) from the custom installer.

When installing from a minimal installation, you need to install these packages yourself (you were missing virtualbox-guest-additions in this case). You’re expected to know what you need when performing a custom installation. :)

You can learn more about the different package groups and Fedora editions by studying this file: comps-f27.xml

Issue got resolved when I used the live media image (1.5GB) instead of the installation media (4xxMB).

I am not sure if this helped but I also used NAT as primary network and Host only in secondary network in the VM image configuration.

Anyway I am glad its working now :)
