Did you use the right key combination? You send an emulated CTRL + Alt
+ Del to the guest OS on VirtualBox with HOST Key + Del. "HOST Key" is
the right CTRL key by default, but you can change that via VirtualBox
configuration. In other words, if you don't change the HOST key
mapping, the emulated CTRL + Alt + Del is right CTRL + Del. A real
CTRL + Alt + Del will indeed go to the host OS.
