To clarify, I am NOT installing Niresh into a VirtualBox container (this is why it has been so hard to research this problem.) Essentially, after installing and a lot of trial-and-error of the Niresh Mavericks distro, I was able to use it without any boot flags other than what I had specified in the boot file. However, when using my Mac, I had decided to install VirtualBox. Upon rebooting, it will no longer completely boot when it attempts to load some vbox drivers. Is anyone aware of how to fix this, or at least, how to completely remove this stuff from running at boot? I can get into the system with safe mode so it's no problem to manipulate things. Deleting the application did nothing so I'm assuming more things are stored in places I do not know.


Thanks for any help guys.
