I was able to boot into it once then it updated and left me out in the cold.
Was I supposed to do the update?

Well I installed Ubuntu to VB again this time I connected to lan line and it went faster.
After rebooting it updated again this time it says unmet dependencies, but resumed.

Anyway Ubuntu updated successfully I get a message saying SMBus uninitialized upgrade bios.
The threads that I did see their system wouldn't boot all they way, mine boots and can get to internet, but extremely slow. I haven't tried ubuntu on this laptop to see how it performed, but I think I'll put squeeze in the box and see if it performs better even though it's a Squeeze machine already.

Any suggestions on the SMBus problem.

I have that one working I still need to do the guest additions, the iso is already there just have to initiate.

Now that I know that I can do this, I'm back to original question.

The os that's on usb needs to be converted, Virtual box has a vdi converter, it converted from iso to vdi.
Will Virtual Box do the conversion and do I just import the hdd?
Actually I thought I read that VB can clone a drive.

By the way. Consider editing a single reply instead of one after the other. May be easier for us to read.
I installed ubuntu in my amd64 in VB and it only took about 20 minutes.
