I was using VB in a set-up like that up until a few weeks ago. I worked well I have to say but I couldn't get a full screen and in the end I installed dual-boot instead. This was with Win7(32bit) as the host, FreeBSD(64bit) as guest. I didn't try FreeBSD as host because I read that it's lacking USB support for the moment.
