@hacosta: Are you using networkmanager? I got the same problem with virtualbox/qemu. I think this is a bug in the networkmanager-package; there is something wrong with setting the route.
I figured out a sorta-workaround for this. Everything gets set up correctly by virtualbox, except the DNS servers. So if you go to Start->Settings->Network Connections, right click on "Local Area Connections"->Properties. Click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"->Properties, then copy your DNS servers out of /etc/resolv.conf into that box, and it will work.
OK, OK, I give up ....
Trying to install Arch Linux as a guest in Virtual box.
Booted the Voodoo CD, then did modprobe piix
The VirtualBox HD is then recognized, install goes fine, but I can not boot.
Keep getting a kernel panic.
I read through various how to's on the subject and have added piix to The Modules section of /etc/mkinitrd.conf
I added various things to the Grub kernel line, including loadearly=piix and a pause, still no joy.
So, please, how do you get Arch to boot ?
Thank you in advance.

If is not broken ... tweak it
did you already fix this problem?
Because I have the same trouble to get Arch running as a VirtualBox Guest!
I tried also various settings but at every boot arch runs on the same errror:
"ERROR: Failed to parse block devive name for '/dev/hda2'"
Or has anyone else a hint?
For those of you getting kernel panics/crashes when installing Arch as a guest in VirtualBox, you'll need to boot with the IDE Legacy option.
For who-knows-what reason the suggested 'nmi_watchdog=0' doesn't work on my box - a simple bash script with the following content does though:
sudo modprobe vboxdrv VirtualBox
