Fixed-size disk becomes "read-only" for no obvious reason ...

I try to migrate a harddisk (10GB, 60% full) from an existing Linux system to a virtual machine. Created a fixed-size disk image of similar size, attached it to a virtual Debian4 machine and copy all data with rsync from the existing Linux box to an ext3-partition on the virtual disk. After a while (about 500MB) I get "destination file system is read-only" errors.

"mount" reports the file system as rw.

Tried the same thing with a dynamically expanding disk and don't experience any problems ....

Could you please attach the VBox.log file from that session?

Wow, that is Darwin on a 4-core Xeon? Did the Linux guest write some messages into the kernel log? It sounds like your guest freaked out somehow and switched to read-only mode. Unfortunately, the log file does not show any problems. Of course you could try if version 1.6.4 makes any difference ...
