Actually, I got the same thing with RC3 the other day. But I went to try
again just now and it worked. I used FreeBSD-9.0-RC3-amd64-bootonly.iso
and it worked just fine. Since the first time I did install the latest
version of Virtual box so not sure what changed in there, or it was
something else. But the machine its on is running Windows 2008, so it
did support amd64 when I had the failure.
