Kernel Error

Postby FAIB » 30. Mar 2010, 15:41

This happened on my update from 3.1.4 -> 3.1.6....

Cannot Access the kernel driver!
Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully - Failed to open session......

What can I do to fix this? I really don't want to loose everything.

Other info: Using Windows xp, also on the session I'm using on my vb.

How do you properly back up the virtual hard drive?

I found that just rerunning the installation and select repair works just fine. Still a good idea to backup though.
