Question FreeBSD virtualBox install failed


I'm trying to install FreeBSD as guest in VirtualBox.I gave it 512MB RAM and about 4GB vhd.When I start the installation,I'm checking to install doc,ports and source code.But during the installation progress,i got the following error:http://tinypic.com/r/28ajjo9/6.

Any ideas!??

Hi, My suspicion is,

Installing the sources will require quite a bit more space than a typical user environment.

You may need to increase your partition size.

Give FreeBSD a good bit of room. I gave it at least 50GB of Dynamic Space to get it installed for testing purposes and building ports packages. If you have the available RAM, give it at least also 1 GB of RAM.
