running Virtualbox inside Qemu is not supposed to work well.
Additionally the SVM (AMD virtualization extension) emulated by Qemu is
not tested nor maintained by us. So you should run it on native Intel

Additionally, if your Linux distro with Genode is running as a VM this
also causes reliable trouble (e.g. Genode VM -> qemu ->
VirtualBox/Genode - Tinycore Linux)

Just guessing:
- either the image got not correctly to the USB stick
- your BIOS/UEFI does not like your USB stick or has trouble in the USB
boot emulation

Try another USB stick or on another native machine or sometimes
switching the USB ports (on a USB 2 port instead of USB 3) may help.
