I had, Fedora 19 is gone, running Virtualbox with a VM of what was
rawhide (the now Fedora 20) running for a long time. When rawhide split
to Fedora 20 and Fedora 21 (rahide they bot still worked fine.

Two possibilities. PEBCAC or his hardware. My guess would be the first.
Newbie stuff.

Virtualbox is the most thoroughly documented program I have ever since.
Ever. The "Help File" is a searchable PDF. If 'your system' can read a
PDF and if 'you' can read and comprehend all will be revealed.

I 'helped' an over 80 Year OLd lady do this by email. Me in Seattle and
her in London. Took about a week.
