Due to the missing HLT (halt) instruction emulation in the VMXAssist real-mode emulator, certain versions of the SYSLINUX boot loader could have caused the guest operating system (domU) to stop responding. With this update, the HLT instruction emulation has been added, and all versions of SYSLINUX now boot properly.
