Install into Virtual Box seems to go along OK until the final screen - the restart occurs and a cli message tells me to "Please remove installation media and close tray (if any) then press ENTER"

Regardless of the install being an iso image on the host system or an actual disk the system will not restart, the enter cmd doesn't seem to work.

How do I get this VM to restart ??


In VirtualBox, click on Machine, and then choose Reset, and that will restart the machine for you.

  • Sorry but this doesn't work, everything is lost from memory, so no OS to boot to :-( – Ted Aug 5 '13 at 9:02
  • Does it display any error messages? – Mitch Aug 5 '13 at 9:03
  • Just that mentioned above – Ted Aug 5 '13 at 9:04
  • No, I mean when you click on Reset, what happens after that? – Mitch Aug 5 '13 at 9:05
  • Nothing, get a failure to load OS type message from Vbox – Ted Aug 5 '13 at 9:08
