The link you have posted has 'http' typed twice. Anyway, from the picture it is not possible to read or identify anything. Can you post something better understandable?

Please provide more information, such as

What OS/Distro are you running in VirtualBox?

What is the host OS?

What video card do you have in your computer?

What are your "Display" settings in VirtualBox?

What have you tried, if anything, and what error messages have you gotten?

And anything else you think might help folks figure this out.

I think that's the point. The screen is all screwed up.

I've seen that before. I think X is misconfigured.
You might try: Xorg -configure

This is always happening when resolution in virtual console is too small. Try to resize it.

Nope on X as this is console mode.

Does it do the same when you run just from VirtualBox?
