Virtualbox on XP Professional?

Postby drmoore1 » 1. Apr 2008, 23:42

I read where it said XP all service pack but does this include professional or not? Because I am getting:

Fatal: No bootable medium found. System halted!

It runs with every Windows, I have 2003 and XP running just fine. Is the cd/iso bootable? Check that first.

You already have, VB doesn't boot it. If it's a CD then try to boot your computer with it. If it's an ISO file, open it with an ISO program, that will tell you if it's bootable or not. Are you also sure you mounted the disk properly?
