Looks like there's a bug :-) I just tried exegnu64_devuan_20150624.iso in virtualbox, grub does not get installed. 

After running "exegnu-installer", do not reboot.
Open a terminal, bekome root and install GRUB manually:

$ sudo bash
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
# cp -a /dev/sda /mnt/dev
# chroot /mnt
# mount -t proc proc /proc
# grub-install /dev/sda
# umount /proc
# exit
# umount /mnt

Remove the CD and reboot.

You don't need the extension iso, as the virtualbox guest additions are already installed :-)
