Bug Description

If you choice of Virtualization is Virtualbox and the ISO your testdriving is using a kernel which was built with PAE support then the ISO does start and throws an error on the guest console:
The message in the virtualbox console is below:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This kernel requires the following features not present on the cpu:
pae

Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
there is a work around which is to manually start VirtualBox which at this point the testdrive image configs should have been written already to disk. Go in to the Image settings->system->processor and select PAE Support.

But it would be nice if the config that testdrive was using for the image already new that it should have the PAE support enabled
