With a hard disk created with qcow format, a snapshot is taken. Then the VM is no more bootable, an error with:

Could not open the medium '/home/vbox/VirtualBox VMs/epesi bk Clone/Snapshots/{6235c127-ca53-42db-9fb0-5a393e368a01}.qcow'. VD: error VERR_INVALID_POINTER opening image file '/home/vbox/VirtualBox VMs/epesi bk Clone/Snapshots/{6235c127-ca53-42db-9fb0-5a393e368a01}.qcow' (VERR_INVALID_POINTER)

The file exists and has all permissions. Converting the hdd format to vdi snapshots can be created an executed without problems.
