Jumbo frames are currently not supported. Will be documented in the next release.

However, what's not clear to me is what "the OS does not start" mean exactly. Does the guest OS hang? A hang could be due to the jumbo frames getting dropped, which would be in some sense correct behavior.

Yep I don't have the vm to reproduce anymore, but at some point in the guest startup it hunggged. :)

You can close this.

I tried this in the latest opensolaris with vbox 2 and opensolaris didn't crash. I couldn't get the jumbo frames to work, but no crash :)
