There is no such version as 7.10. Do you mean 7.04 or 6.10?

I ment 7.04 :) My apologies.

Reproduce with latest ISO from ubuntu website, 20gb harddrive unpartitioned. Try booting. It will load for a while but you will never be able to reach the gnome desktop that gives you access to the installer.

Please make sure that you have assigned at least 256Mb of RAM memory to the guest.

I am unable to do so, since my laptop system only has 375Mb of ram. The same image is able to boot successfully in VMWare Workstation iirc.
