I can explain, but you won't like the explanation. Software
virtualization in VirtualBox is incomplete, and some commands are just
not virtualized correctly.

Windows 8 I think also _requires_ hardware VT to be ON.
Now it should not crash. It just should refuse to start VM. (at least
it should happen, if Android was officially supported guest OS)
