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.
