Opened a community bug report [BLOCKER!!!]
https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/17811

Great advance in my research : On my exact same laptop, downgrading my 8TB
SSD (Micron 5100 series) to a simple 1TB HDD (Seagate Barracuda) let's
VirtualBox work!
I keep UEFI+GPT boot. So UEFI+GPT is not a problem. Big system disk is.

Disk image transfer is done via Clonezilla-live-2.5.5-amd64.

I have another desktop PC (Phantom) with the same 8TB SSD, Windows 7, which
works like a charm. But on the desktop, the big storage is not bootable /
system disk. The desktop uses BIOS+MBR with another smaller SSD, as a
system drive.

So, is it VirtualBox doesn't like big storage for system disk ? (>2TiB)
Or Clonezilla fails to write to big SSD? Or...?
