Goal: Run Ubuntu via Virtual Box on Windows 10
Issue: Boot screen stuck at black screen:
immediately after the initial purple screen while starting reading from the downloaded ISO
ISO downloaded from https://ubuntu.com/download/desktop (ubuntu-18.04.4-desktop-amd64.iso)
Virtual Box Settings:
Video Memory: 128MB
RAM: 4 GB
Processor: 4 Cores
Controller from where the ISO is being pulled:
I have already disabled the Hyper-V and Virtual Machine Platform option from "Turn Windows featured on or off"
Before posting this question I have already gone through these links but found no success:
Can you share what I am missing in the basic first step of installation of Ubuntu iso in the Virtual box on Windows 10?
Even the logs of "Virtual Box" and "Event Viewer" of Windows are having no information on why this issue is coming.

I would recommend you to use Virtualbox 6.0 instead of 6.1.
I had some issues with long initramfs loading on 6.0. It seems some issue with initramfs loading could be present on 6.1. You could also try to Enable PAE/NX on System -> Processor and Enable VT-x/AMD-V, Enable Nested Paging on System -> Acceleration tabs.

@Ragav, do the hardware virtualization enabled? It seems software virtualization is disabled in version 6.1.
"Please also use version 6.0 if you need to run VMs with software virtualization, as this has been discontinued in 6.1. Version 6.0 will remain supported until July 2020."
