install Crux 3.2 in Virtualbox, grub broken?


Anyone tried Crux 3.2 in Virtualbox?
I install Crux 3.2 in Virtualbox many time. Grub is broken everytime after installed finish. I follow its handbook and run
Code:
# grub-install /dev/sda
and
Code:
# grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
without any error. But when I reboot it from hardisk, grub broken error page appears. How can I fix it?

Depends on what the error is.

I know in one case the VM used virtio for disk, and grub didn't have the proper driver for that. I don't know if it has been added since. You might check what kind if driver is being used (if it isn't a SATA, pick that for the VM and try again).

Not sure what this mean. Are you saying at first you got a grub prompt and no menu, and now you get a grub rescue prompt? Grub will have to be reinstalled if it is a grub rescue prompt. If it is just a grub prompt you will need to create a /boot/grub/grub.cfg either automatically or manually

are you currently booting in bios or efi mode?

I mean "grub prompt" is that when I reboot it, grub appears very very short time and then "Grub Rescue >" screen appears.
Yes I did, boot from iso and reinstall grub. But same issue.
I am currently trying to boot from bios using grub.
sure I did
Code:
# grub-install /dev/sda
# grub-mkconfig > /boot/grub/grub.cfg
without any error.
