Bug#751000: Installation in Virtualbox works now with EFI

Hash: SHA1

Installation in Virtualbox works now with EFI and UEFI-GPT partitioning, but the system
is not bootable then. It shows a black screen and a fully loaded CPU instead of booting
up correctly.
I have no idea, how to fix this, because I have hardly any experience with
I tried this image:
from 2014-08-18
with the same settings a beforehand, but with EFI enabled.
Without EFI, there appears this error-message:
- ---
bios32_service(1229148196) : not present
pci_init: no BIOS32 detected
FATAL: Could not read from the boot medium! System halted.
- ---
I think, normally both should work, be installable _and_ bootable.

Description: x86 virtualization solution - base binaries
 VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range
of x86 operating systems
 such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a Linux system.

 This package provides the binaries for VirtualBox. Either the
virtualbox-dkms or the
 virtualbox-source package is also required in order to compile the
kernel modules needed for
 virtualbox. A graphical user interface for VirtualBox is provided by
the package virtualbox-qt.
