Your virtual machine has atypical configuration, than those of typical
desktops. It only has 8GB of disk-space which is insufficient to have
two ubuntu installations.
Please create at least 20GB disk drive if you wish to have 2 Ubuntu
installations on it.

Beautiful screenshot by the way =) glad that ubiquity looks good in
Ubuntu GNOME.
