The desktop vm should start a gui. Check the /var/log/Xorg.0.log files for errors. Try starting X yourself with:
  sudo startx
and see what errors are produced on the screen (and recheck the log). If you have a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf, try renaming it to xorg.conf.old and see if X starts without it. If you can get X started, the gui should work. What version of Ubuntu are you installing in the VM? The Unity GUI may run in 12.10, but so slowly as to be unusable in a VM, so you may need another one.

Can you help with this problem?
