VirtualBox 1.6.2 hangs with FreeBSD 7.0 guest and Intel VT-x enabled

I'm using VirtualBox 1.6.2 in my Gentoo Linux system (kernel 2.6.25 x86_64) and if I enable the Intel VT-x setting, I cannot start FreeBSD 7.0 from the ISO images. It either hangs at startup (boot loader) or it hangs when I'm presented with the menu to choose and the timer is stuck at 10 seconds. When I disable the Intel VT-x extensions, installation starts normally.

I'm using a Intel E8400 processor with Intel P35 chipset and 4GB RAM.

Maybe this will help, I had the same issue under windows, and got it working:

Please reopen if this still happens with VBox 3.0.10.
