I used Alfresco 4.2 for several years with no problems, but Alfresco 5.0.d log is full of message errors ... time to use other CMS.
No issues using running in VirtualBox on Windows. My procedure: 1) first create a new vm without storage, 2) copy the files from the Bitnami download into the vm directory in ~\My VirtualMachines, then 3) pick the vmdk file as a virtual hard drive in the VirtualBox settings for the vm.
The installation took about 10 mins and worked for me.
But one hour is a very short time to test a complex product like Alfresco. Further I missed the Activiti BPM add on for Alfresco which is a very important part for me.
This version of Alfresco is broken. I would love to try this out. Please update the Alfresco cloud launcher for AWS so that it works.
In my experience, Alfresco works as advertised by needs a lot of RAM, particularly when it is indexing files. I wanted to store a few thousand documents in a repository and index them so I can search the contents. I had to allocate 6GB RAM to the machine otherwise Alfresco would run out of memory during the initial import. After the initial import is complete, RAM usage is much more reasonable.
