Ubuntu 9.10 & Sun VirtualBox not working with Win7Pro

Has anyone tried to install the new Ubuntu 9.10 with Sun VirtualBox on Windows 7 Professional. I had the previous version of Ubuntu working on the Sun VirtualBox but the new one doesn't. It just gets to a spot where it looks like i'm seeing the upper left hand corner of the screen magnified by %300 and in 8 colors.
