I can't give it a try right now, but I would expect to see an error: I've
already had to update my starter kit at the beginning of November, to
address the name of the IDE controller having changed. [1]  The proper
solution would be to get the name of the IDE controller by parsing the
output of "VBoxManage showvminfo", instead of hard-coding it.

I've never looked at the reasons for the name change - is "IDE controller"
what you get when using Packer, instead of just "IDE"?

Best regards,
