Guru Meditation 1155 (VINF_EM_TRIPLE_FAULT) trying to install 64 bit Linux as guest, Arch Linux host

Description

I'm running Virtual Box 4.3.16 on an Arch Linux host (Intel Xeon CPU, VT-x activated). When I try to install a 64 bit Linux as guest system (i.e. Debian or Arch Linux) vBox crashes with "Guru Meditation Error 1155 (VINF_EM_TRIPLE_FAULT)" while loading the guest's Linux Kernel. 32 Bit guest-OS work fine.

I tried different settings for the VM in Virtual Box (CPUs, RAM etc.), also turned off VT-x and Nested Paging with no success.

The attached log file was captured while trying to install Debian 7.6

Having identical issue, heard elsewhere it may be related to older xeons. Here are the flags for the ones I'm currently using:

flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe syscall nx lm constant_tsc pebs bts nopl pni dtes64 monitor ds_cpl vmx est tm2 cid cx16 xtpr lahf_lm tpr_shadow

processor : 15 vendor_id : GenuineIntel cpu family : 15 model : 4 model name : Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.00GHz stepping : 8 microcode : 0xb

Yes, we are able to reproduce this problem. Happens only on older Xeon models as well as on Pentium D models.
