Some Windows10 versions work fine with VirtualBox 5.0.x, while others have problems.

If you experience failures with VMs not launching, e.g. for ATLAS or CMS on a Windows 10 host, please try to upgrade VirtualBox 5.1.x. The issue seem to affect only some builds of Windows 10, ref: https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/issues/1737

Thanks to Toby Broom for the link!
