I am starting a project under Linux and have difficulty with installation on Virtual Box. I have no idea why during the installation, the following screen shows.

VirtualBox: 5.1.6 version
Ubuntu : 16.04.1 Desktop i386

    Press the key combination ctrl-alt-f1 and then ctrl-alt-f7 and see what happens. If that doesn't work, try right ctrl + f1 and then right ctrl + f7 – cutrightjm Sep 18 '16 at 8:43
  • Try disabling any 2D/3D options for the graphics card for the VM in virtualbox – GMaster Sep 18 '16 at 10:17

Try these options:

  1. Install Ubuntu on a different host OS.

  2. Wait a bit (when I see that garbage, it disappears in 10 seconds.)

  3. Try to install a different guest OS, or a different version of Ubuntu.

  • Additionally, this question should be moved to AskUbuntu, as it discusses a problem on Ubuntu. – user190346 Sep 18 '16 at 10:13

Press Right Ctrl + F1, then Right Ctrl + F7.

This will reset the graphics adapter, first into text mode (TTY1), then into graphical mode again (TTY7).
