If you message me on any of the following, and I don't reply, please don't assume I received it.

I'm Occasionally Asked For My Comments (but not in the way you think ;-) )

Please feel free to use my pro-forma comments, most of which are derived from the defaults or the ones shared here rather than being written from scratch by me (some are even identical):

  • Import/access them in plaintext or jsonp (last updated 2 July 2013).

I do not claim original authorship of them, but if any of them turn out to be wrong or not very good, that is possibly my fault. :-)

comment ooting to windows safe mode with dual boot not working
It sounds like this is happening in Windows; that is, Windows boots but then when you try to use it (for example, when you try to log on), the problem happens. Assuming that's the case, it's a problem with your Windows system and not with Ubuntu or GRUB (the boot loader that lets you choose between Ubuntu and Windows). For this reason, we may not be able to help you with that problem here, but I recommend asking about it somewhere Windows is supported, such as Super User.

I wish you luck in getting this to work, but this really isn't about Ubuntu. That Ubuntu is the host doesn't appear relevant: this issue pertains to OS X and VirtualBox, and will probably have to be fixed in terms of what you do in the guest system (as others have suggested), making it not really an Ubuntu question.
