VirtualBox issues

Ok, here is my issue. I have ubuntu server 10.10 installed with ubuntu desktop installed on top of it (gnome). I have virtual box and was able to get it running good with a dynamic drive running Windows 7 64bit. I'm trying to install it now with a static drive to see if I see a performance difference. However it doesn't get past 0% every time. Any ideas on how to get past this?

My system:

AMD Phenom II (Quad Core) processor

1 TB Hard Drive, non partitioned, fully given to Ubuntu
(Trying to give 400GB to Virtual Windows 7 Pro 64bit)

8 GB DDR3 RAM (Giving 4GB to the virtual windows guest OS)

Need any other info please let me know, hope someone has a idea what is going on. I tried googling it, didn't come up with anything tho. Also this is using Oracle's VirtualBox, not VMWare or anything else.
