Virtual Machine is inaccessible - No error message

Reported by: hafthor Owned by:
Priority: major Component: VM control
Version: VirtualBox 3.2.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Mac OS X


Shortly after upgrading to 3.2, I rebooted guest (Win7x86) and it stalled during reboot, so I closed the window to force it to shut down. Then rebooted my host (mac) and tried again. Now, that VM is marked 'Inaccessible'. Unregistered VM, built new one pointing to old vdi, let Win7's startup repair do its thing. Seems to be complaining about the disk integrity. Yikes. Will try to add more detail.

Got my vdi running again. Didn't notice newer versions default to SATA controllers instead of IDE for primary disks. Phew.

Hmm, but existing VMs are not changed when you upgrade. Or did you re-create the VMs?

comment:3 Changed 8 years ago by hafthor

Well, yes, I recreated the VM to recover from the 'Inaccessible' VM problem.
