While your testing to see how things run I would keep it very simple!:

1. Make sure you can remote desktop from Windows 2008 to the Windows XP VM
2. Close down the XP VM
3. Create a basic batch file like

-- START XPVM.bat EXAMPLE:

  cd "c:\program files\oracle\virtualbox"
  vboxmanage startvm "Windows XP" --type headless

-----

Remember the VM Name is case sensitive so whatever you named it must be
what follows STARTVM

Run the batch file at the Command Prompt and you should see a successfully
started message.

If after a period of testing it all seems to run ok then you can experiment with
more advanced HEADless approaches.

I would try running PX in Windows XP so that if you would move to Windows8+
you want need to solve new problems with each new Host OS.
