virtualbox installs pcbsd again and again and again


I'm in a loop - in virtualbox I installed pcbsd10 and instead of rebooting into the system it always goes back to the install.
What am I doing wrong?

Did you remember to remove the virtual CD, DVD or USB installer disc before trying to boot into the installed system?

It's an iso file on my pc.
I already right clicked the cd-icon in the bottom panel of virtualbox but then it doesn't find a system to boot.

Then it's likely you missed a step in the installation where you should have added a boot loader to the main hard drive.
If you have done the above then what is the host OS, what is the host architecture, what is the guest architecture?

I'm on Manjaro Openbox and the guest is PC-BSD10.
EDIT:using Graphical install
EDIT2:I managed to get out of the loop by unticking CD for bootup, but then it halts after a few seconds; I'll investigate further tomorrow and mark solved if I find what the problem is. Desperate for some night rest first ;-)
EDIT3:I (finally) found out how to remove it by clicking Remove disk from virtual
