The following happens when I start up Fedora, I've installed it on VirtualBox, how can I stop it from doing this? Both of them take me to same installation of Fedora, I have no clue on how this happened. How do I make it so it boots with just one of them?

The only difference is that the guest additions seemed to be installed on the first Fedora only.

The following are my VirtualBox settings for Fedora:

Just use the topmost line. It appeared after the yum updated your kernel.

The second line is for loading the previously installed kernel (in this case it is a kernel from distro)

The third line is self-describing.

If you do not touch keyboard it will load the default (the topmost in your case)

If you like to change the timeout value to speed it up - look at man grub and into the file /boot/grub/grub.conf
