VirtualBox takes hours to boot machine on Intel

Recently installed Solaris 11 11/11 and VirtualBox 4.1.16. First guest that I set up was going to be Win7 64-bit, but it took forever to even get to boot from the install media. It's been nearly 24 hours and it's still on the "Windows is loading files..." progress bar (100%, waiting to launch the installer). Below are my guest and host specs. I'm running VB as root right now, but it had the same functionality as a user, except it threw an exception when using passthrough mode on the BluRay drive (and wouldn't boot from the DVD with it disabled).
VirtualBox VM specs: OS: Win7 64-bit (ideally, if it installs) Memory: 11264MB CPU: 1, 100% execution cap CPU acceleration: VT-x/AMD-v, nested paging disabled Video: 24MB memory, 1 display, no 3D acceleration, no remote server Storage: 25GB dynamic VMDK stored on zpool, BD drive with passthrough Audio: disabled Network: 1 port enabled, NAT Serial, USB, Shared Folders all disabled/defaults
Host specs: Motherboard: Intel DX79SI CPU: Intel Core i7-3820 Memory: G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB Boot drive: OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-60G Data drive: 5.54TB zpool with 6 hard drives using raidz2 (drives of various sizes including 1TB, 1.5TB, and 2TB) RAID card: SIL-3114 raid controller. I had to flash this card with an IDE-only firmware to get Solaris to pick up my drives, then in the format utility I had to specify the numbers so I could use the drive. There are 2 drives connected to this, the other 6 SATA devices (5 hard drives, optical drive) are connected directly to the motherboard) Optical drive: LG BluRay burner VT-x is enabled in the BIOS
Not sure what logs you'll need to help me troubleshoot this. Let me know and I'll provide them.
- Host type changed from other to Solaris
- Component changed from other to VMM
