Altiris Imaging of Windows Guest through PXE disconnects after a short time

Using Virtualbox 2.0.0 on Windows XP SP3 host, attempting to image a Windows XP SP3 Guest (Though no OS yet installed) using an Altiris PXE Server.
PXE server is on the local network. I created a virtual network interface through VirtualBox, and bridged it with my existing LAN connection.
Booting the VM from network successfully finds the PXE server. It successfully loads the DOS PXE OS, and begins imaging. Network speed is very slow, and eventually the imaging fails due to 'corrupt image or partition'.
I have tried the following steps: (Altiris KB articles: https://kb.altiris.com/display/1n/kb/article.asp?aid=17448&n=9&s=) Unfortunately they make no difference.
Thought the VM will boot successfully to PXE through the bridged network connection, it seems that the speed is too slow or that the connection gets too many errors to successfully download the image file.
