[Solved] Virtual Machines don't start

Postby Bernhard92 » 2. Dec 2017, 13:13

Hi,
Since yesterdays Creator Update for Win10 all my Virtual Machines don't start.

The error code I get is:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Fehlercode:E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Komponente:MachineWrap
Interface:IMachine {b2547866-a0a1-4391-8b86-6952d82efaa0}


In the attachments you can find the error log from the Virtual Machine.


best regards
Bernhard

Reinstall VirtualBox, just like you effectively reinstalled Windows.

How can I make sure to keep the content of the Virtual Machine, the Guest Extensions, the shared folders.... when I reinstall VirtualBox?

Why would reinstalling VirtualBox affect your VMs? Would reinstalling Word make you lose your document files?

Your VMs are not affected if you update VirtualBox. VirtualBox is the program, VMs are the data. If you upgrade iTunes your songs do not get affected. Same with VirtualBox.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.

Reinstalling Virtual Box didn't resolve the problem. The error code, when trying to start any of my VMs is still the same one I uploaded previously.

Edit:
Upgrading to another Virtual Box Version (5.2.2) resolved the problem for me, maybe the 5.1 version I used before is not compatible with the latest win10 update.

Generally speaking, if you want the latest Windows you should have the latest VirtualBox. You simply didn't mention which VirtualBox version did it for you. Could you?
