It seems that VirtualBox still has problems, according to the FreeBSD wiki :
Maybe you should try qemu instead, as it seems much more stable now :

I used qemu to virtualize Windows Server 2003 some time ago (on Gentoo  
and Mandriva boxes), and it was working (as long as you consider that  
a Windows system "works").
