Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)


I know that this bug has been reported before and has a status of being fixed (tickets #7811 and #7251), but it is definitely present in version 4.0.4 , so this is not a duplicate.

I have the following problem running VBox on Windows 7 Host:

  1. I created a raw vmdk disk using the following command:
    VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename D:\VirtualPC\Physical_Ubuntu\disk.vmdk -rawdisk \.\PhysicalDrive0 -partitions 5,6
    RAW host disk access VMDK file D:\VirtualPC\Physical_Ubuntu\disk.vmdk created successfully.
  1. Then I tried to add it to a virtual machine and I got the following error message:
    Failed to open the hadr disk D:\VirtualPC\Physical_Ubuntu\disk-pt.cmdk .
    Result Code: 
    VBOX_E_IPRT_ERROR (0x80BB0005)
    IMedium {9edda847-1279-4b0a-9af7-9d66251ccc18}
    IVirtualBox {d2de270c-1d4b-4c9e-843f-bbb9b47269ff}

I hope this helps you. Thank you for such a great product! I am enjoying using VirtualBox.

Sorry, the file in the error message was supposed to be D:\VirtualPC\Physical_Ubuntu\disk-pt.vmdk (I was copying the first line of the error message by typing it manually)

I can confirm that this same issue is happening to me as of 4.1.8 on a Windows 7 host. Using the same VMDK in VMware works just fine, so I believe it's a problem with the media manager since it won't allow me to attach the drive at all.
