Windows XP guest on Ubuntu 7.04 host: cannto boot from hd

I have a SATA HD with 4 partitions in my computer, 2 NTFS (Windows xp + data partition), 1 Reiserf (Ubuntu) and one swap partition.

Ubuntu is my host SO and Windows xp is the guest one.

Yesterday I installed VirtualBox and created a vmdk file to the Windows XP partition, using the command line. Then, I created a Virtual Machine for Windows XP and I configured this vmdk as the primary HardDisk.

When I started the VM a black screen appeared right after the VirtualBox splashscreen with no errors, but It stays in this screen forever. I looked in the log and the last line was something like "botting from HD...".

I´ve tested with versions 1.4 and 1.5.

What am I doing wrong?
