Also, when trying to install OpenBSD in virtual box and have rebooted I am returned to the original installation menu to install again or exit to shell or whatever. I don't have any ideas.

it seems that your VM searches its virtual CD drive before looking in
the hard drive for a bootable image. IME you need to remove the
installation media from the VM's virtual media slot, then a reboot
should find the installed OS.
