Ticket #9092 (new defect)
Linux host Windows XP guest virtual drive gets corrupted when installing service pack
|Reported by:||myersmarkl||Owned by:|
I am using Ubuntu 11.04 as the host and I am trying to install Windows XP as the guest and then using windows update to install all the updates. I have 2 Win XP CDs, one does not include any service pack the other includes service pack 2.
The installs works fine from both CDs in that their are no errors. Windows update seems to work fine in that there are no errors. When service pack 2 or 3, depending upon which CD I started with, is applied Windows update says the service pack was successfully installed and requires a reboot. When the guest starts to boot I get a message that Windows cannot be found. When I boot the guest with the CD and select repair and run chkdsk on drive c:, chkdsk finds file after file that is corrupt and cannot be fixed.
I have tried this many times now with the same result. I have tried installing and not installing the 4.0.8 extensions before using the Windows update. The virtual drive is defined as IDE master. I have even managed to corrupt the virtual drives of Windows XP that were created under VirtualBox version 3.
