XP guest will not start on laptop

Postby Goliath 45 » 23. May 2012, 23:34

Hi, I cloned 2 32bit guests from my old win7 64bitPC- Ubuntu 10.04 & XP Pro w/SP2. Both transferred perfectly to My new PC, but only 10.04 will boot on my Lenovo G560 laptop.(all hosts are 64 bit) XP will boot into Safe mode only, but no internet.....thought I'd try installing SP3.

I tried changing hdw. acceleration settings, anything I could see to try, nothing works....it gets to the 'windows is starting up screen', then reverts back to Vbox in endless loop. Evidently it lacks some needed driver/s, since it boots to safe mode.
Correct ext. pack is installed. Sure would appreciate any help. thanks

hi Perry, sorry for the late reply, too many family issues getting in the way.
I'll post the guest log file asap, but will check if io apic is on first.
thanks!
