I am still getting this problem on my iMac (core duo) with Mac OS X 10.4.11 and VirtualBox 2.10.

My Windows XP image hangs during loading (splash screen or black screen before login). VirtualBox then sits there holding 100% CPU. This usually happens soon after mouse integration comes on. I've tried switching the SATA controller, ACPI, IO APIC, VT-x and PAE/NX on and off with no effect (windows is not using ACPI or the APIC HAL). It hangs in average 2 out of 3 times I try to start up the machine from the menu. Sending a reset signal (Host+R) and then selecting "continue to load windows as normal" sorts it out after 1 or 2 attempts. Windows then loads quite quickly and operates adequately for the remainder of the session. Upon shutdown, OS X reports that VirtualBoxVM has crashed.

I'm attaching two log files (one for a machine powered off after it hung up during loading and one that was reset until loading was successful) and the crash report generated by OS X. Both attempts were carried out with ACPI, IO APIC VT-x disabled, SATA enabled.

I forgot to mention that my Windows XP image was ported over from VMWare Fusion. I have followed all the steps recommended here in the wiki but mouse is still detected as VMware input device inside windows.

I had this same issue just now, also with a ported VMWare image. Until I realized that I had created a new virtual machine with a copy of the harddrive, and I forgot to "Enable IO APIC" in the virtual machine settings.

I hope this helps...
