I can easily reproduce it using virtualbox-ose 4.0.4-dfsg-1ubuntu4 on
ubuntu 11.04 host.

VirtualBox does not have access to the network, there is only one
host-only adapter (I use it to get syslog file).

I was able to workaround the problem in following way:
# chroot /target
# cd /dev
# ln -s sr0 scd0

I don't know why d-i hardcodes(?) scd0 device name, but there was no
such device.
I found it out while trying $(apt-cdrom ident) in the chroot.

Ok, it fixed apt problem I was prompted if I want to scan other CDs, I
had no other *.iso files, so I answered "no".
But grub-pc was not installed still, so..
<Alt-F2> # again
# sed -i 's/# deb cdrom/deb cdrom/' /target/etc/apt/sources.list #
cdrom source was commented for some reason

And now testing is installed! yahoo!
