Good Morning guys! My problem is very unique. My VM was working just fine with no issues, but yesterday I removed my VM by clicking on remove. but instead of clicking remove only, i clicked delete all files! My VHD got deleted permanently! So, with muchh patience, I downloaded it again(7.39 GB)..but this time, something strange happened. WHen I started it, a screen started and I can give you one word that was showing a lot and it is "removing orphan file"...something like that...and it took approx 1/2 hour and when it was done, i tried to start the VM and now there was an error...and the error was.."lsass.exe system error: Security Accounts Manager initialization failed because Directory Service cannot start".

Than I tried formatting my C drive. Installed everything again and now the error is gone, but got new strange issue! BLACK screen....nothing happens!

Please help me guys... I lost my sleep over this..

My Host OS is WIndows 7 and Guest OS is Windows Server 2003.

Thank you

It's usually better and faster, if issues get first addressed in the  VirtualBox forums. More than 95% of the issues are resolved over there, which keeps the developers focusing on the bug fixes and enhancements, and there is no need for another ticket to keep track of. For example, yours is most probably not a bug and someone from the developers has to deal with it and close it as "Invalid".

So, if you can, please open a new thread in the  Windows Guests section of the forums. Please be sure to mention that you came from the bug tracker and include the ticket number.
