Ticket #782 (closed defect: fixed)
Windows XP guest on Ubuntu 7.04 host: cannto boot from hd
|Reported by:||andreblobo||Owned by:|
I have a SATA HD with 4 partitions in my computer, 2 NTFS (Windows xp + data partition), 1 Reiserf (Ubuntu) and one swap partition.
Ubuntu is my host SO and Windows xp is the guest one.
Yesterday I installed VirtualBox and created a vmdk file to the Windows XP partition, using the command line. Then, I created a Virtual Machine for Windows XP and I configured this vmdk as the primary HardDisk.
When I started the VM a black screen appeared right after the VirtualBox splashscreen with no errors, but It stays in this screen forever. I looked in the log and the last line was something like "botting from HD...".
I´ve tested with versions 1.4 and 1.5.
What am I doing wrong?
