As noted in the forum, some files are non-free:

And gnu/linux extensions are packaged in trisquel (virtualbox-guest-utils, virtualbox-guest-dkms and virtualbox-guest-x11.

Would be more interesting to create an iso image with just the gnu/linux drivers than remove the menu option?

Any free distro must provide their own free drivers, so i removed the support for non-guest additions

Thanks for providing the fix.. Hope it will be applied to the upcoming Trisquel 5.5 too.
