That system is going to run slow no matter what OS you're running. Even if you installed the maximum RAM, it would still run slow. Operating systems have just gotten too large to run smoothly on such low-end hardware.

That laptop is very old and underpowered for any sort of virtualization in virtual box. Windows 7 will be slow aswell because of the cpu limitations. Windows xp would be fast if it was installed onto the laptop rather than a vm. When running a vm you are forcing the laptop to run windows xp and win 7 at the same time, which it takes a much more powerfull pc to do.
