Bodhi does not boot, boot ends in EFI shell

Question

Hello,

 

I want to try Bodhi Linux, first in VirtualBox, and later on my laptop. I downloaded version 4.2.0 64 bits, started the iso and then installed it. Now, the VM comes up with the EFI shell every time I start it. No Bodhi comes up. How can I fix this and what could be wrong?

I use Windows 7 as the host for VirtualBox.

First off, welcome to the forums.

 

This is a VirtualBox flaw, their efi-implementation is far from ideal. We had a workaround in our ISO-builder but that might be broken for some reason, will look after that.

 

In the mean time you can create a little file that will help you booting Booting Linux.

When you are in the EFI shell type:

edit startup.nsh
FS0:\EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi

ctrl + s to save

ctrl + q to exit the editor

Now you should be able to boot

 

Enjoy,

Charles

First up, this is NOT an accusation.

 

Did you do any actual searching online? I typed virtualbox boots to efl shell on duckduckgo and the first hit was https://askubuntu.com/questions/162148/virtualbox-machine-boots-to-efi-shell#162149

Thank you birdmun. I apologize. English is not my native language so sometimes I have problems with phrasing my search queries in the right way. 

By Bodhi now boots fine. Thanks again.

Thanks Charles. My Bodhi now boots fine. BTW, do you live in Zeist? I lived there for 20 years. 

Je kunt dan waarschijnlijk dit ook lezen???

theolangsnoer, English is my native language and I sometimes can't get the written word to come out properly. :D Your command of the language is just fine. :)

Glad your system is working now.
