please check the guest IP with 'ipconfig eth0' in the guest. If the
IP differs from the one returned by 'VBoxManage guestproperty', then
it might be that an old guest property is still active and was not
overwritten by VBoxService. In that case, check if VBoxService is
running inside the guest.

Actually the IP hints that this must be the 2nd slot, otherwise the
guest would have received A VBox.log file would be interesting.

In general, please open a bug report and attach a VBox.log file there.
