VirtualBox 6.0.6 VM guest boot hangs with customized Fedora 30 Remix

Description

I am creating a customized 64bit Fedora 30 Remix called Untochat. It is a Live Linux that allows you to install to harddisk, too. Live image boots fine with VirtualBox and installation to (virtual) VDI disks succeeds as well. But when booting the newly installed Untochat9 from disk, the boot never reaches graphical login screen.

The problem is deterministic, but I am unable to debug this myself. To reproduce the problem, Untochat ISO image (1.4GB) can be downloaded from:

 https://kolttonen.fi/iso/untochat9.iso

My main host is stock Fedora 30, but the same problem occurs on host MacOS Mojave 10.14, too.

Using libvirt + qemu + kvm on Fedora 30 host, everything works fine, so I suspect this could be a bug in VirtualBox 6.0.6.

Hey! Lightdm graphical login screen FINALLY appeared, but it took ages to happen. I estimate between 30 minutes to 60 minutes, I am not sure. This was on Fedora 30 host.

Another experiment done. Using MacOS Mojave 10.14 host and VirtualBox 6.0.6, it took approximately 10 minutes for the graphical login screen to appear. Very weird!

I just noticed that changing Graphics Controller makes a huge difference.

If I choose Settings -> Display -> Graphics Controller -> VMSVGA, getting to the Lightdm login screen takes forever.

With VboxSVGA, it is fast.
