"Although I don't know the particulars of your exact problem, here is a potential solution:

With Ubuntu Server 8.10 running under Virtualbox. First after installing Ubuntu Server 8.10 (Intrepid) the kernel failed to boot. It turns out that this was due to the fact that PAE/NX (Physical Address Extensions on the Host) are not enabled by default in the VM. To enable this you need edit the settings of your VM: Settings > General > Advanced > Extended features > PAE/NX."
