Exclamation OpenBSD 4.6 - filesystem read-only after install

Hi I have installed OpenBSD 4.6 on my virtual station in VirtualBox , installation was sucessful, but i have seen some warnings.... when i reboot after installation my system write this error :

Code:
init: cannot stat /etc/login.conf : No sucg file or direcotry sh:/etc/rc : No such file or directory

Enter pathname of shell or RETURN for sh:
when i type enter and write mount -a system looks normaly... but i dont know if its true... i try to type fdisk with some parameter (sorry i dont know which) and after system write that filesystem is read-only...

ps. i get this message when install was progress - Segmentation fault - wtf?

thx

Below is traffic from the misc@ mailing list discussing VirtualBox:

At the moment, it is the general consensus that VirtualBox is broken.

The best answer is to search the misc@ archives yourself. As I recall, more people have success than with VirtualBox:

At one time I successfully installed an OpenBSD 4.5 guest in VirtualBox 3.0.4 on an OpenSolaris 2009.06 host. Prior to that I had various problems including segmentation faults. After I upgraded to VirtualBox 3.0.6, I again received errors I had previously seen and dropped VirtualBox altogether at that time.

If Sun ever decides to stablize VirtualBox and get it to work with supposedly "supported" operating systems I would go back to using it, however, they seem to continually add new "features" without addressing some old issues.

VMWare workstation (4.x, 5.x, 6.x, 7.0) or player or server run OpenBSD virtual machines just great, have for (4) years now for me just fine. I have also gotten many virtualbox (don't recall version number) OpenBSD 4.x installs running great, i have one on my work laptop, can't be without OpenBSD anywhere ...

My OpenBSD guest VirtualBox installations on an OpenSolaris host were all in non-global zones which complicated the installations. Otherwise, in the global zone the installs were not as problematic.

I did not mention my host for VirutalBox was Windoz based (and OpenBSD) ... i have not run VirtualBox on Solaris and can not offer anything towards that, not certain if Sun prefers "fixxing" the Windoz'z ports first?

I too did not mind using VirutualBox (tried at first for cross platform compatability) but i must say that VMWare is a MUCH better solution and that i do not use VirtualBox daily.
