I've never seen any claim that it's supported on Virtualbox ?
From the download page software requirements:
It works just fine on my VMware workstation install ...
I hope this response has been helpful to you.

not really helpful, but nice to see that you are fine with the vmware solution.
Some people have restrictions on their workstations to not use vmware and for me i do not see any reason why it should not work on virtualbox like the other versions.
Would be nice to find someone interested to get the cDOT 9 working on virtualbox
thanks for your reply

6gb should work, so should 3.5gb. Its due to subtle differences in the memory map between the two virtual platforms. If you have more, give it more.
You may find it panics again when you go to 9.1. If so, add serial ports to the vm:
#If these are missing it can get stuck vboxmanage modifyvm "$name" --uart1 0x3F8 4 vboxmanage modifyvm "$name" --uart2 0x2F8 3
While you're at it, the ioapic setting is often missed:
vboxmanage modifyvm "$name" --ioapic on
Then boot to the vloader and set the console variable:
setenv console vidconsole,comconsole
Then it should come up.
