PC-BSD v1.5 x86 & x64 dies during installation in VirtualBox v1.6.0

I´m running VirtualBox v1.6 on a Windows XP SP2 Host here.

Guest was PC-BSD v1.5 x86 as well as PC-BSD v1.5 x64

PC-BSD dies during the installation (see attached screen shot).

Seems to me that PC-BSD is unable to load the shell. I tried both Free-BSD as well as None/Unknown for the Guest OS. None of them seems to work.

The problem seems not to be related to the Host CPU. I tried at home (Opteron 170 with 2GB RAM) as well as at work (Core2 Duo T7500 with 2GB RAM).

I tried both SATA as well as EIDE for the virtual HDD but this didn´t help either.

Sorry to say but VMWare Server 1.0.4 installs and runs PC-BSD fine on my work PC. Installation worked like a charm without any hickups and the FreeBSD VMWare extensions work fine for PC-BSD.

One additional comment: When selecting SATA for the virtual HDD PC-BSD was unable to access the HDD. I experienced the same thing when installing Ubunut 8.04 from DVD image. May be the SATA emulation causes problems ?!?!?

Is this bug still relevant with VirtualBox 2.0.2?

No response, closing. When installing BSD, activate VT-x/AMD-V.
