From my own experience using a BeagleBoard, the preinstalled images from Canonical do not install well. Following the instructions here to create a running installation via netinstall may be more advantageous: http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardUbuntu#Method_2:_Use_the_NetInstall_method. I have done those three or four times and currently have my BeagleBoard-xM running Xubuntu 12.04.
