Well, it probably shouldn't show a Guru meditation in that case but 2048 are more than the theoretical maximum memory usable by one VM running on a 32-bit Windows host. VirtualBox has to map the whole guest memory into the address space but the address space layout on Windows on 32-bit hosts is 2048MB for user level and 2048MB for privileged memory. Therefore I guess you will not be able to assign more than about 1800MB for one VM. If you need more, switch to a 64-bit host OS.
