screen remains black at WinXP guest boot up

Description

Host 1.5.4 VirtualBox on Fedora Core 7 on AMD64. Guest: WinXP Home Edition (32 bit).

When the guest boots, the screen remains black. This happens every time.

Toggling to fullscreen activates the screen and all is well till the next boot.

This was especially disconcerting during install and before the toggle magic was discovered. I did not think the install was working properly. This also happened with an WinXP Professional install. I'd say this is major only because it might lead to a poor perception of the product, which otherwise looks stellar.

Fedora Core 7 host is dead OS. unsupported. The closest to it is RHEL 5 host.

WinXP guest worked for me on RHEL 5.3/x64 host on VBox 3.0.x (3.0.2?).

VBox developers: I recommend closing this bug.

maaack: If needed, open a new one. (with newer host OS and newer VBox ver)
