# 14.10 only boots to UEFI Interactive shell

Hello I am very new to Ubuntu and am testing it out on a VirtualBox VM.. It installed fine, I was even able to install Guest Additions and a few apps before shutting it down for the day. Now when I try to boot the VM all that loads is the UEFI Interactive shell. How do I get it to boot back into the normal desktop?

• Go into your VirtualBox settings by choosing your Ubuntu VM then Settings. Choose System and then uncheck Enable EFI. – John Scott Dec 4 '14 at 1:48
• I just tried that and all it gives me is "no bootable medium found" – Lucian Dragos Dec 4 '14 at 13:36
• Ah. No wonder. It's because you installed it in EFI mode. You need to make a new virtual machine and install Ubuntu all over again and make sure that box is NOT checked! – John Scott Dec 4 '14 at 21:16
• Well that figures.. I didn't do much with it yet anyway so whatever x_x And this is why I VM things 1st lol – Lucian Dragos Dec 4 '14 at 22:27

Edit startup.nsh. Add the line:
fs0:\path\to\grubx64.efi
