Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Hi,

I tried to start a Virtual Machine in VBox which has a .vmdk file as harddisk attached to it but it will not boot. I'm using version 2.1.2 VirtualBox. Here is the log I'm getting

Please could you attach the complete log? Use the attach function. And could you attach the .vmdk descriptor file as well (only the descriptor, not the real hard disk image please).

Hi,

I added the logfile and the vmdk descriptor file Hope you can find a solution ....

Greetings Alexander

Alexander, could you attach the file Windows XP Professional.vmdk as well? I assume that this is a descriptor file.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by aldero99

Hi,

The Windows XP Professional.vmdk file is the actual VMware disk file of about 7Gb, I suppose you don't need that. The .vmx file is the descriptor file which you already have.

Greetings Alexander

Hello,

I have the same issue it seems... Tried to use several vmware images (XP and W2k) within VBox. Also .vdi file created using "VBoxManage clonehd" showed the same error: Stuck on start-up with result as shown in attached "mac-lover log". I have attached the original .vmx file (I guess this is the descriptor file) as well. Hpe there is a simple solution..

Cheers, Claude

Reopen only if this doesn't work. You can't migrate Windows systems easily, just like you can't expect a hard disk with a Windows installation of one computer to just work when putting it into another.
