[ubuntu-cloud] [ec2ubuntu] UEC inside virtualbox?

Yeah, Vbox has VT-x/AMD-V settings.

I noticed my UEC install behaved differently if I install on a closed
network (host-only in vbox terms) without internet access. Seemed to
come up better when the machine had internet access.

Does UEC need internet during install or boot?

I'll experiment more until I get it working and post results for others.
