Unfortunately, this magic pixie dust depends on your CPU model, UEFI/BIOS
settings, Linux host kernel version, and VirtualBox version. I've had VMs
that became unbootable after moving to a newer hardware, and vice versa.
The VirtualBox documentation [1] gives a certain amount of background
knowledge, which is then the basis for finding the right setting that
makes things work.

Sorry, I had expected that it would be as smooth for you as it was for me.
