FYI, booting the VM with vagrant up after having manualy added the .iso of the VBox guest additions (from the Debian package), allows to perform the installation with the provided .run script.

Maybe something that changed in the VirtualBox iso that needs to be reflected to bootstrap-vz ?

Hope this helps.
