                   Frédéric,


 Following would be enough

#!/usr/bin/python

from vboxapi import VirtualBoxManager

style = None
g_virtualBoxManager = VirtualBoxManager(style, None)

def startMyMachine():
        vb = g_virtualBoxManager.vbox
        session = g_virtualBoxManager.mgr.getSessionObject(vb)
        mach = vb.findMachine("Windows")
       
        print "Starting VM",mach.id
        p = vb.openRemoteSession(session, mach.id, "gui", "")
        p.waitForCompletion(-1)

startMyMachine()
