When I choose "Linux 2.4 (32-bit)" as the VM host type, those extended
features are disabled by default.  However I went through the System
setting and turned off anything left such as hardware clock, got rid of
the audio card and USB, and I tried a few different paravirtualization
interface settings such as Minimal and Legacy but got the same results.

Yes, I have other VirtualBox images that work fine.
