I tried to install NixOS in VirtualBox using the graphical 64-bit iso (nixos-graphical-0.2pre4532_bfe6c13-c150b8c-x86_64-linux.iso). When I issued start xserver, I got this output:

Failed to issue method call: Unit xserver.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status xserver.service' for details.

Try start display-manager.service?

Not a bug. Install cd now mentions the correct command to run Xorg.
