VirtualBox destroys VmWare 7.0.1 Image
|Reported by:||Sharky444||Owned by:|
I've just tried using a vmdk image with Windows XP on it. It was created by VMWare 7.0.1, my VB version is 3.1.4 and the host is Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Result: the vmdk got corrupted, you get a loading operating system error when Windows starts to boot. This is no blue screen, just a text message on a black screen.
What is bad about this, is that the vmdk was destroyed. You cannot use it in VMWare anymore, you get the same loading operating system error.
Luckily I had a backup of it. After restoring the backup I've tested it with VMWare. Works. Loaded again with Virtualbox. It has been destroyed again.
Since I've still the backup, I can repeat the operation if needed.
