I'm reporting this because I think this is a bug. At least, I can reproduce it.
I'm trying to use a USB Key (physical) as a virtual disk for a VM. For this, I looked at the documentation, and I found something at 188.8.131.52 :
VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename /path/to/file.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sda
I apply this to my case, the command runs well. But when I start my VM with this vmdk disk, I got exactly the same error as Beren in this topic :
The screenshot is available here : http://www.joelandmeg.com/webpics/win7shot.png
I tried to downgrade Vbox to the 3.0.8 version, and everything is working well.
That's why I think that the createrawvmdk command is broken in the last version.
I'm running MacOs X SL 10.6.4
