I've had no issues install XP SP3 on VirtualBox(although half the time it was through MDT). Try this: Go to the device menu and click install VM additions. Then while the Windows XP CD is loading press F6 and see if it finds any HD drivers from the VM Additions. I'll look at my MDT server and see if there might've been any drivers I added as well.
