Windows 2003 SP2 32bits work fine with VirtualBox guest additions, but when enable /3GB switch video only supports lowest color profile (4 bits) and 640x480 resolution.

Unistall VirtualBox additions and video works again with /3GB switch enable

The same is true for 4.1.10. Setting the /3GB switch makes it so that the only video mode that works is 4-bit 800x600.

Absolutely same issue for 4.3.14r95030 Win8 64bit as host.

WinXP with /3GB in boot.ini only support 4-bit colors.

Seems problem is related to VirtualBox video driver
