Some memory allocation problem. Try to decrease the guest memory. I know, your host seems to have sufficient RAM but for some reason VBox cannot allocate it...

Could this also be related to #10219

After decreasing guest memory to 2GB, it works again ... but I think there is really a problem with the memory allocation ! Thanks to PerryG

Also please make sure to use IDE mode for the DVD ISO. AHCI will not work, phyiscal or virtual. This is a bug with Win8CP.
