Mageia 7 and VirtualBox

Mageia has been one of my favorite distros since Bruno introduced me to Mandriva (its parent) back in the day. I was interested when Mageia 7 beta came out recently so I installed it in VirtualBox.
Unfortunately it doesn't work. After a reboot I got no graphics, just a >grub prompt. Reinstalling grub didn't do anything.
So I fell back to Mageia 6.1 and it ran fine in VBox off the ISO. After installation it still worked but when I did a package upgrade and rebooted I just got a black screen.
Based on my VBox experience I have to conclude that Mageia right now is not ready for prime time.

Nice one for the office wall. I plan on printing out a poster sized copy of this on one of the plotters at work Monday.
