Hello, I'm trying to install Fedora 24 Server on a virtual box for a class I'm taking. I have the .iso mounted with daemon tools, I've selected 64-bit Fedora in VB, the install works fine it seems but when I reboot I'm right back at the install screen. I have noticed that if I go through with the install again it says I don't have enough space and I end up having to remove the partitions I set up for the previous install. Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks!

No idea about virtualbox but it looks to me that Virtualbox keeps the media you used to install as a boot device so every time you reboot it load that media that is something that you have to manage on virtualbox your self.

So your comment gave me some ideas and I fixed it! In VB I had optical as the only thing selected in the boot order. I ejected the iso and enabled hard drive and moved it to the top of the boot order and that sorted things right out. Thanks for the help!
