Last I checked (year or more ago) it was a known bug (I think
ACPI-related). In short, Windows makes some special system calls during
install - they supposedly speed up installation on raw hardware, but
slow down by a lot on virtual machines. Workaround was to disable ACPI
during install... or something to that effect
