Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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).
Yes I get grub prompt. Then I get grub rescue> screen.
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
I tested it with SATA. Not work.
I also tested EFI and Lilo as well.
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.
