When CTRL+C when the following message is displayed during the boot


Press Ctrl-C for Boot Menu


Then select option 4 "Clean configuration and initialize all disks. "

At the prompt to install a new filesystem press y and at the confirmation prompt press y again. The virtual machine will then restart and reset all the config which should fix your issue.
