Well, I seem to remember that I had this working once, using WinXP on a Sun VirtualBox with Win7 as host system -- but I don't have any facts about this anymore!
But the crux of the matter was that theVM host software has a way to map USB devices to the client, and I recall that the FW device has one device ID when it's in normal operation but a different ID when it's in DFU mode -- so the trick was to map both ID's to the WM client!
That of course meant that I had to connect a different physical kbd&mouse to the host system in order to be able to control the host at all. I used some plain wireless kbd/mouse combo set for that.
