1. Start any VM that uses GRUB2 bootloader such as Fedora 23 or 24.
2. At the GRUB boot menu type e to edit an entry.
3. Modify boot entry (or not, problem happens either way).
4. Use control-x or F10 to boot the modified entry.


Nothing. GRUB seems to not get the keyboard command ctrl-x or F10, but does see other individual key entries because I can edit the boot entry.


I should be able to control-x or F10 somehow. Maybe a way to use arbitrary keyboard combinations from the Boxes keyboard icon that contains a handful of these like ctrl-alt-f1.
