Ticket #3386 (closed defect: fixed)
Snapshot creation fails for vmdk image

|Version:||VirtualBox 2.1.4||Keywords:||snapshot vmdk|
When I try to create a snapshot of a running 64 bit Vista guest, it ends with a dialog saying "Failed to create snapshot for virtual machine miffot", and underneath it is an empty text box (which I presume should contain a more specific error message).
Shortly after this, the VM fails with a BSOD and tries to reboot. After the VM has rebooted, it stops at "FATAL: Could not read from the boot medium! System halted." This persists if I try to reset the VM, but it works again if I power it off and starts it again from the VirtualBox main window.
The system disk for the VM is an VMDK image. There is plenty of free space on the disk where the VMDK resides, and where the snapshots are saved. Snapshots taken when the VM is powered off works fine.
The host is Ubuntu Intrepid 64 bit.
