Maybe the image is corrupted?

I'm pretty sure that VirtualBox is not the way to go for embedded Linux - would try it under Qemu instead.

VirtualBox works fine for embedded linux:

His mistake (talked on IRC) was to make an image without LLVMpipe installed
As you go on to other communities, remember to build them around politeness, respect, trust and humility. Be wary of poisonous people and deal with them before they end up killing your community.. Seen it happen to too many IRC channels, forums, open source projects.

Thanks for everyone to reply.

I installed llvm-dev in my PC and tried to install on Virtual box.
But the result is failure.
I could have installed completely on Virtual box but fail to boot.
I tried to install on qemu , but fail to install.

I checked kickstart file and I found that qemu-arm-static version was checked whether it's version is over 0.14 or not.

Is qemu-arm-static Ver.0.14 needed for making iso file?
