See if it will boot then. Also the settings for the guest must match as close as possible and the VMware additions need to be removed.
You then install the VirtualBox guest additions for all the benefits.

Turn the "IO APIC" option on.
This is not a suggestion or a speculation. Hanging on a black screen when booting a VMware VM is nearly always happens because VMWare defaults to IO APIC on, VirtualBox defaults to having it turned off. Either turn IO APIC on or use the HALu tool to change your HAL. Windows will not boot with the wrong HAL.
