I have a running windows 2003 server (32 bit) that I would like to migrate to virtualbox.
I have VIrtualbox 3.1.2 running on a ubuntu host.
I am using the instructions from the virtualbox site http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Migrate_Windows
I got the disk images and copied and converted with VBoxManage convertfromraw
I made the windows machine and attached the .vdi files for the C: and D: drives
when I boot the virtual windows machine from the virtual drive, it says FATAL No bootable medium found
If I put in the Windows server 2003 cd and boot from that, I get the error that \I386\halaacpi.dll could not be loaded error 3072. right at boot. It never makes it to the place where repairing the drive is an option (as it suggests in the guide above)
I read the microsoft knowledgebase items on the HAL options and if I hit F5 right after boot from the windows CD I get the list of HAL options. I have tried all of them with no success.
If I hit F7 right after boot, it skips the HAL check, It will then start to setup but stop with an error that says "File adpu160m.sys caused an unexpected error (3072) at line 3963 in d:\srvrtm\base\boot\setup\setup.c
Help or suggestions would be appreciated.
