Windows CD not working

Reported by: OLLI_S Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 1.3.6 Keywords: Windows 2000 Update CD Previous Version not recognized
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other



I downloaded and installed VirtualBox (in following VB). I created a new Windows2000 OS. I inserted the "German Windows 2000 Update" CD into the CD drive and started the OS. I worked with VMWare before, so I did assign 1024 MB RAM (my PC has 2048) and selected the proper HOST CD-ROM drive. Of cause I created a HDD drive.

Win2000 starts the installation and after pressing F8 to "Accept the EULA" it says "Please insert the Win98 or Win95 CD, because this is an UPDATE version". I did this but Win2000 tells me that this is not a valid Win98 CD.

I restarted my HOST Computer (WinXP Professional) and booted from the Win2000 CD (so now NOT inside VB, I started my REAL PC). Same procedure, after accepting the EULA I had to insert my Win98 CD. But here ist is working, Win2000 shows me the partitions I want to install the OS to. Inside VB I get the same message (to insert a previous version of the OS) many times and I can not istall Win2000.

Please fix this bug.
