Installing Windows Server 2008 in VirtualBox

Today I installed a beta Windows Server 2008 onto a virtual machine on my Mac using VirtualBox. After some trial and error, the following settings seem to have allowed it to work:

OS Type: Windows 7 (64 bit)
Base Memory: 500 MB
Processors: 1
VT-x/AMD-V: Enabled
Nested Paging: Enabled

Video Memory: 12MB
3D Acceleration: Enabled
