VMMR0.r0 expects C: drive to be the Windows System drive

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

I was getting the VERR_NO_MEMORY (can't remember exactly, but something like this) on starting VMs. I am using the Windows version of VirtualBox. I was getting an "unknown error" loading VMMR0.r0. Since I could not think of any reason why should fail to load, I took a guess that because my system drive is E: and not C:, perhaps that was the problem. I ran the command subst C: E:\ and that gas definitely resolved the problem.

Make VirtualBox more tolerant of non-C: system drives.
