Using Virtual Box 6.1 on Windows 10.

Have 2 VMs...a VM that's windows works fine. Have a Windows 8.1 (64 bit) VM that was working fine, but now no longer boots up and instead gets stuck on the "Press any key to boot from CD..." screen. I've tried resetting the VM and starting my computer. I also changed the boot order to Hard Disk, but still did not resolve never boots. Logs attached. Any help is appreciated.

Issue resolved: As other guest VMs were working fine, I knew the issue was specific to that one guest VM. I tried to resolve the issue by booting from the Windows ISO file, hitting F12, and going to Repair Windows, but I got .an error message saying it could not repair it. The solution was to not select Repair Windows, but instead go to 'Advanced' and click repair startup issues.
