Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I am trying to add the VHDs for that microsoft provides here  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=21EABB90-958F-4B64-B5F1-73D0A413C8EF&displaylang=en to test ie6 and ie8 web application compatibility. They work fine in VPC.

I'm running 64bit VBox on 64bit Vista, I have a Win Server 2K8 image that works. I do have hardware virtualization enabled.

Here is the output when i try to add the disk image through VBoxManage:

C:\Program Files\Sun\xVM VirtualBox>VBoxManage.exe registerimage disk "d:\misc\v
pc\xpsp3-ie6\XP SP3 with IE6.vhd" -type normal

+1 I have the same problem, along with a crowd of other people (see eg  http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?p=51946#51946)

I meant to ask when the fix was due for release, esp. with regards to people that cannot afford to switch to vbox-ose in order to build from SVN

I have create a VDI with 2.1.0 (Host:Vista64, Guest: only Data on an ext3-Disk) and important data within but I have the same error now:

Is it the same failure (VDI vs VHD)? How can I recover the data? Can I build the SVN-Version myself?
