In Ubuntu execution of rule /lib/udev/rules.d/85-keyboard-configuration.rules 
and loading kernel module vboxvideo occur independently and consistency is 
not guaranteed. As a result, font on the consoles set randomly from video 
bios or user defined. To avoid this, you must set up the consoles after 
loading the module. This can be done by adding simple rule to  
/etc/udev/rules.d/60-vboxadd.rules:

SUBSYSTEM=="graphics", ATTR{name}=="vboxdrmfb", RUN+="console-setup-tty 
fbcon"
