Installing new Win7 guest crashes/reboots host -> retry with 3.0.8

|Host type:||Mac OS X|
I just created a new 30gb virtual disk to install Win7 Pro. Upon installation, right after it expands the files, my Mac restarted. Apparently VirtualBox is crashing and taking the host down with it. I created the disk with an older version of VirtualBox (which meant I had to choose Vista as the guest type) and then updated to the newest before trying to install Win7. After two crashes I decided to change the guest type to Windows 7 and VirtualBox crashed again, however this time it did not take down the host.
