There is an error on boot. It didn't seem to be very serious.
The error is similar to this: fsck cannot run on this drive. no such file or directory. I'll have to write the exact error down and post it later.

Is the error in red? Do you remember if it comes before or after it says "The initrd init program took xx.xx seconds"? I've attached a screen shot which shows this message.

It comes before "The initrd init program took xx.xx seconds"
It is displayed early in large white text before the screen resolution changes.
I managed to copy it by watching it boot several times.
Code:
checking root file system fsck util-linux.2.25.2
fsck error 2 (no such file or directory) while executing fsck ext4 for /dev/sda7
exited with status code 8
Warning filesystem check failed but did not find any errors

Edit: I didn't realize this was on an installed system. You could try booting the live media again and then run:
Code:
sudo e2fsck /dev/sda7

With some LiveUSBs the names "sda" and "sdb" will be swapped so you might need to run:
Code:
sudo e2fsck /dev/sdb7
instead. I doubt both /dev/sda7 and /dev/sdb7 will exist so running either command should be fine.

I sometimes have power outages; the automatic check at boot time has been extremely useful. It would be good if we got it working for you but I don't know how to fix this problem in the installed system. I usually just work with the live system.

We created a special vbox mode for making the xorg.conf file when we detect we are running in Virtual Box. The 1280x1024 resolution works well for both anti and me in Virtual Box.
Replaced the initrd.gz and its md5sum and added the xrta.tgz in the B2 ISO using ISOMaster and saved it as a new iso, booted virtualbox up with it and no change to resolution, still at 1280x1024. Not sure your updated file would have addressed that, but it's not a major because a simple grub edit takes care fo the resolution running live.

I believe selecting "Save Video Mode" from the main bootloader menu will bring you down to 1024x768 inside of Virtual Box
the F8 save option is not available through virtualbox as the iso is treated like a read-only cdrom.

Didn't see any extra features at the grub screen in virtualbox, what should I be looking for?

the fsck error is easily fixed.

update-initramfs -u -t (in root terminal) followed by reboot.
This is fixed for next test release.

It looks like the fsck error is gone.
It booted so fast through that section, I could hardly see the information about "checking root file system"
I did get these errors below when I ran "update-initramfs -u -t" in a root terminal.
This is on an installed system.

This is probably irrelevant since the fsck error was on an installed system, but I wanted to reply to BitJam's post.
I don't get that error about "checking root file system" when I boot my Live media.

Yes, this is as designed. That is why I suggested you use "Safe Video Mode" (sorry for the typo). It should give you 1024x768 in Virtual Box.

"Safe Video Mode" in the main menu. This should work now. Alternatively, you could try the boot parameter "xorg=1024x768".

The other fix is that we delay even further when video modules (such as nouveau, i915, radeon, etc) are loaded. This was a safe work-around around a bug kathern found when we load the radeon module earlier. We added a udev rule and changed the splash-set script so the console decoration doesn't disappear when udev loads video modules that change the framebuffer driver.

That did fix my "missing firmware" errors. I also connected with my home router through an ethernet cable and it connected fine. Thank you.
Now I need to google those other 2 errors.

The "missing firmware" errors didn't really affect my ethernet connection, it was working even with the errors, I upgraded the firmware to the 0.43.3 version mainly because I got tired of seeing them.

I ignore bitching errors unless they effect something.
Too used to complaints, crying, screaming, and barking I guess.

ignore such kernel messages unless they affect smth. Hey, try Systemd I believe it does not print them :P

Roky, maybe you can fix that bios password using the reset pin on mb? I forget what those pins are called dont use them anymore.

Thanks Coyoto for the suggestion.

Figured out default bios bios reset before I whined about it.
It was simple. Just pull Cmoas battery and press power button for 10 seconds then reinsert the battery.

Waiting on some parts now that are due in a couple of weeks or so. More or less.
