XP Virtual Machine Running On Win 10 Was working, now is not

Postby drnebula » 29. Aug 2019, 19:53

Have been running an XP virutal machine using VirtualBox for quite a while. All of a sudden, when I try to open the XP virtual machine, it crashes (failed to load). Error codes shown below. Any help appreciated.

This is your problem. The guest drive 'F:\Win XP\VirtualXP.VHD' is missing. Find that folder, check the drive letter, etc.
