When booting Windows 7 x86 with the driver verifier enabled (for a different driver), an INVALID_KERNEL_HANDLE crash occurs on startup, and WinDBG reports that VBoxSF.sys is at fault. VirtualBox is running on a FreeBSD 9-CURRENT host.

Ran into the same problem. For now, you can switch to Vbox-OSE which does not include the SharedFolder driver, and try to proceed from there. Or, you can disable / rename VboxSF.sys.

Unfortunately, disabling VBoxSF.sys merely allows you to boot a little further until you run into ticket #6453.
