Temporary VirtualBox Fix for New Macs

So lately I've been trying to run linux in Virtualbox on the new mac I bought recently, only to find that I had this problem. As talked about later in the comments you can fix this problem by simply booting into the 32bit kernel. Obviously this is only a temporary solution, but it works and if you want to be able to say, pass your Advanced Unix course without using another computer it's certainly better than pressing the host key over and over again.

To boot into the 32bit kernel simply hold down the 2 and 3 keys at boot.
