Ticket #5369 (closed defect: fixed)
(mac 10.6.1 host) VirtualBox 3.0.10 fails to boot linux guest iso

The officially released version of ubuntu karmic server (i386 32-bit): http://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/ubuntu.iso/karmic/ubuntu-9.10-server-i386.iso
Fails to boot into a brand new VM, platform: 10.6.1 Snow Leopard, with VirtualBox 3.0.10. No other configurations were tested.
The Appropriate "Linux" and "Ubuntu" dropdown were choice, and "Linux"/"other", and "other"/"other" were tried. Various setting, changing Memory size, PAE on/off, etc. All to no avail. Just a black screen and nothing happens after mounting the ISO, and boot.
The iso file is being mounted / read and the md5 checksums were found to be correct (no iso download error). VirtualBox shows the correct boot order for CD, HD, so it usually will work. Hopefully someone else can provide further data points with similar hardware / os to narrow down the issue.
