Debian on MS Virtual Machine (FIX)

At weird screen press CTRL + ALT + F1. One of your ALT buttons is used to restore focus back to your real Windows environment, so you’ll need to figure out which ALT button to press. That key combination should get you back to the Debian command line.

At the command line login by entering “root” (Enter), then your administrative password (then Enter again).

Then type the following, followed by Enter:

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

That brings up a “text editor”, which lets you edit the xorg.conf configuration file. Use the keyboard arrows to scroll down until you see the section titled “Screen”. Change the default depth from 24 to 16. Then press CTRL + O, Enter, CTRL + X.

Once you’ve done that, type the following (followed by Enter) to reboot the GUI:

sudo reboot
