I created a VM and tried to boot it after creating a vdi for it and hooking it up to an Ubuntu 7.10 server installation iso. Initially I got an error about failing to load the clipboard sharing stuff, so I disabled that as per aeichner's suggestion on IRC. I then got an error saying this: VBox status code: -8 (VERR_NO_MEMORY).

The whole log is at

The VM is supposed to claim 256MB, the host machine has 4GB of RAM with about 700MB free right now. This is version 1.5.51 running on Mac OS X 10.5.2.
