For some reason the first try of reproduction today failed. Behaviour changed.
It did not hang after trying kexec, but I found it in a real reboot. It went
back to the CD, and in the Boot menu "Boot from Harddisk" worked flawlessly.
Yesterday, when resetting the VM, rebooting from the virtual disk did not work.
The boot loader just hung. These are surprises, after it was hanging every
time, yesterday.

Moreover, I was looking for a switch to avoid kexec, and do a reboot after
installation, but I could not find any switch to make it happen. That kexec
stuff adds some cases more to take care of for all components in this game, X
server, kernel, VirtualBox, and what else. I would accept, if installation in
VirtualBox requires special settings, like turning kexec off. But I haven't
found it. So theory.

I will just retry another time.
