Any VirtualBox/VHD specialists out there?

I'm running VirtualBox on Linux and want to run my XP system under it.

I've put the XP drive in a caddy and used Macrium Reflect Free to make an image which I then, using the same software, converted to a VHD file.

I've put that XP.VHD file onto my Linux machine, created a new virtual machine, Windows XP, selected the VHD drive.

It runs with the message that XP wasn't shut down properly last time and I get the usual load Safe Mode, Safe Mode + Networking etc and load Normally.  Have tried both the first option where is starts to load a number of drivers, and the last option which just freezes.

I've set the controller to be SATA, 512k RAM and am now at a loss as to what to try next.
