We further investigated this and are able to reproduce data corruption if the image is on a ext4 partition. ext4 contained a bug which could lead to data corruption under certain circumstances. The Linux kernel used in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx doesn't contain the fix so far. Can you please try with 3.2.4 and store the image on another filesystem (ext3 for example)?

I also experienced similar issues trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with Virtualbox running Windows 7 (32bit).

Ubuntu 10.04 installs fine, however, using Virtualbox 3.2.4 on MacBook Pro intel running OS X Snow Leopard.

Just installed newest version of VBox (3.2.6) on Ubuntu 9.10 ext4 host, Ubuntu 10.04 guest, installed flawlessly. Nice job on the workaround! This bug is considered closed.
