VirtualBox fails to boot Ubuntu 20.10 beta ISO in EFI mode. Using BIOS mode, on the other hand, works fine. I am using the VirtualBox version from Oracle's repository.

This EFI boot issue is probably the same as observed for FreeBSD in https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/19910 .

Trying to boot the same ISO with an older VirtualBox 6.1.10-dfsg (as provided by the Ubuntu 20.04 repositories) succeeds. It seems that there has been an EFI booting bug introduced with a VirtualBox version after 6.1.10.

The issue still exists in the latest VirtualBox 6.1.16.
