Oh btw, you should be able to reproduce this issue yourself using:

Many thanks,

Your VM runs in software virtualization and I assume that's the reason for the hang. There is most likely a bug in this mode but as modern processors have VT-x (Intel) or AMD-V (AMD) available, fixing such bugs has a very low priority for us. In your case, VT-x is disabled in the BIOS. Check your BIOS settings.

I was tipped off that if I enabled VT-x in my host’s BIOS, it would work. And indeed it does!

Nonetheless would be good if Virtualbox didn't have this experience with the wrong settings.
