So I'm installing 13.10 through Virtual Box and it begins to initiate then just stops...

last message on screen is...

busybox v1.20.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.20.0-8.1ubuntu1) built in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built in commands. 

Any help is appreciated.

This is a known bug in 13.10 see launchpad issue. People have posted some solutions there like: removing hard disks physically or recreating SYSLINUX.CFG
