this is in reference to bug #3725:

I have encounter the very same 4bit display problems after a SP2 update of my W2K3 VM running in a fedora linux 8 Virtualbox V2.1.2.

The w2k3 machine had been installed under Virtualbox v.2.0.2 with its very guest additions. After upgrading my virtualbox some weeks ago, I updated the w2k3 server VM with SP2 and found the display driver to be broken. Only 4bit color and 800x600 screensize.

Uninstalling the guest additions v2.0.2 and reinstalling 2.1.2 guest additions resolved the display problems.

Cheers, Florian

Why open a new defect here? Sounds to me your problem was solved by reinstalling the additions.
