A good alternative is to simply collect all the boot log

Does pressing the down-arrow key work?

I shut down, went out for a couple of hours (sorry ) came back, booted Mint 12 virtualbox and what do you know I have full boot messages available. This is EXACTLY the same as what happened in a fully installed version of MInt 12, it didn't work yesterday, but today, after being shut down overnight, it did. I must be sounding like a crank now, but I assure you this has happened to me twice and it is not because I didn't shut down and try a cold boot previously, I did it for both the installed version of MInt 12 and the Vbox one.
Anyway, if anybody happens to see my sanity roaming around the internet somewhere, could you tar it and email it back.
