VirtualBox vs Symantec Ghost

Description

Host OS: MS Windows XP SP2
Guest OS: PC DOS
VirtualBox version: 1.5.6

I very like VirtualBox. Now, I'm trying to learn how to save HDD image from VirtualBox with Symantec Ghost Solution Suite 2.0 (Ghost 11.0).

Ghost have a wizard, which allow to create bootable CD-ROM or set of two floppy disks. These CD-ROM or floppy contain AMD PCnet or Intel PRO/1000 ndis driver and can connect to a network server to save or restore HDD image.

When I boot VirtualBox guest from the CD-ROM, booting stops at 'Starting PC DOS...' message. VirtualBox log:
Guest Log: BIOS: Boot from Floppy 0 failed
Guest Log: BIOS: Booting from Hard Disk...
Display::handleDisplayResize(): uScreenId = 0, pvVRAM=00000000 w=720 h=400 bpp=0 cbLine=0x0
Guest Log: BIOS: int13_cdemu function AH=42 unsupported, returns fail
<... many identical lines (in except of time) ...>
Guest Log: BIOS: int13_cdemu function AH=42 unsupported, returns fail

When I boot VirtualBox guest from set of floppy disks, guest hangs just after Ghost have loaded. VirtualBox log have these suspect lines:
Guest Log: BIOS: KBD: unsupported int 16h function 6F
Guest Log: BIOS: int13_diskette: unsupported AH=DF
Guest Log: BIOS: int13_diskette: unsupported AH=41
Guest Log: BIOS: int13_diskette: unsupported AH=FF
Guest Log: BIOS: int13_harddisk: function FFh unsupported, returns fail

Is there any workaround?

I can upload full logs, screenshots and images of the CD-ROM / floppy on request.

I can boot VMWare Server guest from the CD-ROM / floppy with no problem :(

P.S.: Sorry for my English... :(
