I have ubuntu-12.04 on my virtualbox and I have two kernels in /boot (old and new). When I restart the vbox no grub appears to choose! and the result of cat /proc/cmdline still shows the old kernel is running.

I tried pressing shift but it also does not work!

Alternatively, comment GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT, per askubuntu.com/a/16049 –  ignis Jul 1 '13 at 10:52

You have to know that VirtualBox is just Virtual, so many things can be different.

Reboot your virtual machine and when you see Oracle's logo , click the screen (focus there) and then hold down Shift until Grub menu appears.
