> Hello,
> I have specialized linux installation which uses ISOLinux bootloader. Recently isolinux version has changed from 4.05 to 5.10. From that time there is a problem with VirtualBox VM, It crashes (guru meditation) on attempt to boot from HDD or hangs on installation from CD.

I would suggest, for the purpose of testing Syslinux 5.xx (and its 
variants), to update to VBox 4.2.x.
