"Destroying" does not make too much sense, unless if you install the GAs formats your hard drive. So, please use more accurate descriptions, otherwise this is going to be a really short, one-sided conversation. Please describe in detail what's going on. If it is the black screen (i.e. you see nothing), then try to disable the 3D acceleration. Please read the following: Minimum information needed for assistance.

Yes you are Right , it was the 3d Acceleration. Thank You.

The Vms are Bootable again. Never had any problems since Years with this.

The VMs were always bootable. What was "problematic" was the 3D acceleration part. Could be due to your host's graphics drivers (update them) or it could be that you didn't update the Guest Additions in your guest (update them). But I can't know without a VBox.log.zip...
