Oh... this is a lot outside my experience. Sorry, cannot help you. I'd recommend a retail installation using a proven tool, such as MyHack or PandoraBox: it's possible on a VM, gives you more control of what's installed and since it's the community's preferred installation method, there are lots of people to help if you get stuck. Consider this, it's worthy.

 

All the best!

You'll need Snow Leopard retail installer media and ModCD (google is your friend) to start. Put ModCD in your DVD drive and set the VM to boot from it. Then put your SL media when prompted and proceed with the installation just like you would on a physical machine. When it's done, boot again from ModCD but this time you'll chose your virtual HDD when prompted. Boot and swap the mach_kernel of the virtual HDD - it will be an invisible file in the root of it, so google about how make OSX show invisible files - with the one in the ModCD. Install Chameleon on the virtual HDD and you'll be good to go.

 

Once Snow Leopard is up and running, you could consider upgrading it to Mountain Lion from inside the VM - the safer and most reliable way of installing Mountain Lion on a VM running on an AMD host.

 

All the best!


P.S.: ModCD - http://www.osx86.net/view/2298-nawcom_modcd_0.3.2.html

 

Now you'll only need a retail Snow Leopard media ;)
