Unable to create virtual machines in VirtualBox

I am on a box that was reinstalled 2 weeks back.

I earlier used to be able to create VirtualBox virtual machines. But now 
things are not so good. Now when I try to create a Windows 10 vm, the 
vdi gets created alright. But when I try to install Windows 10 on the 
vdi, the installer gets stuck at the stage just after "Copying your 
files". I think that stage is captioned "Installing your files". 
Sometimes the installation gets stuck at that stage at 4%, sometimes 8%, 
sometimes 41%.

Is there something I am doing wrong ? I have 'vboxdrv_load=YES' in 
/boot/loader.conf and 'vboxnet_enable=YES' as well as 
'vboxnetadp_enable=YES' in /etc/rc.conf.

To be sure, this is a FreeBSD-specific issue. I booted into Linux where 
I was able to create the Windows 10 vm easily enough.

Thank you & Regards,
Manish Jain
