VirtualBox 3.2.4 issues

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

After installing VirtualBox 3.2.4 on my laptop which runs Windows XP SP 3, it was noted that I could not add a virtual machine, reportedly because there was no hard disk space. This was reported by the guest machine while running the installation for Windows Server 2008 (trial). The hard disk actually had around 38Gb of hard disk space.

It was also noted that after uninstalling VirtualBox, Device drivers (Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Device Manager) were left uninstalled, including a network driver and a driver named 'net'

Is this a bug?

  • Host type changed from other to Windows

How is your host partition formatted, FAT32?

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by jon80

It uses NTFS.

force check file system integrity of all the partitions involved, including the system partition (chkdsk X: /f)

That would lock up my sole hdd, so I can't.

In any case, somehow Windows XP reads that VirtuaBox has not yet been confirmed as compatible, is this true?
