OK thanks, I've reproduced the partition size issue. The installer simply recommends wrong defaults here. After a bit of downsizing it will install. I will take a look at it.

Regarding the hang, It installed fine (and booted after that) here using your settings. I set the type to "FreeBSD", dunno if another type gives different results. But this is vbox 4.2.6 on a Windows host.

What exactly do you mean with hangs? The twiddle stops spinning? Are you able to switch to vty0 (with ALT-F1) which shows the files as they are copied?
