so i downloaded mac os lion beta and i installed on new partition
i used disk utility to get the partition onto a DMG
i went into terminal and wrote: VBoxManage convertdd lion.dmg lion.vdi
this worked then i made a new machine in Virtual Box 4 and used the vdi
i tried using both types: "mac os x > mac os x server" and "BSD > freeBSD"
all i get is this pic: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8215565/vbox%20lion.png
help what do i do now?

Please take a look at this thread. Please contact Apple if you are having issues with the Lion build that you have.

Also note that the EULA for OS X may prohibit you from virtualizing Lion. You should also contact Apple to clarify this point.
