  • I'm not using VirtualBox, so I won't be able to help much.

    First step, I'd say is to use a newer version of pfSense. Looks like you're trying with 2.0.3, while 2.1 was just released. If it's not a requirement to use 2.0.x, there is no use to try with an older version when such a shiny new one is available ;)

    You might want to post more info about your HW (mostly what CPU and network cards), which might be relevant. For example, under Hyper-V, pfSense 2.0.x would panic when running on an amd64 CPU (you had to edit boot.conf) and you had to reset the network interfaces after the boot was completed. There might be something like that for VirtualBox that might have been fixed in 2.1.
