When I try to boot a guest VM from an iso I get the error cdboot: cannot boot from CD - Code: 5

Anyone seen this before?

Happened to me with Win7 Beta DVD on PC with old BIOS.
Had to burn a new disc with a different boot sector.

Probably the "virtual BIOS" has troubles booting from this CD or the iso might be corrupt.

Yes. Try another iso first.

I'm going to try using this utility / script to create a vhd from the iso or install.wim:
