I tried installing Gentoo following http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Virtualbox_Guest and http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-amd64.xml .

I made it to the end but on reboot I get
FATAL: INT18: BOOT FAILURE

I think I screwed the bootloader is there a way I adjust it without going from scratch.

Cheers in advance

I believe this is a know bug for VirtualBox. Do you still have the CD mounted?

I had the same error, but the system booted into grub after unmounting the Gentoo CD-image from the virtualmachines settings.

See this link for more information.

Thanks! Removing the VirtualBox CD image allowed me to boot too.

Removing the ISO CD Drive of the Virtualbox Fixed the issue for me as well. I can boot fine now.
