Windows Server 2003 Restore Suspended VM Failed

Postby Sap » 29. May 2019, 11:10

Hi,

I am running WIndows Server 2003 (32 bit) using Virtual Box 6.0.8.
Since I changed to Virtual Box 6.x I have trouble restoring supended VM's. It ALWAYS fails. (E_FAIL)
Shutting down also fails - The Server always ask me to tell him why the system was shut down unregulary.

I did not have these problem in Virtualbox 5.x.

Any help appreciated.

How on earth did you manage to get 6.0.8 on a 32-bit host? It's not supported or allowed! The last VirtualBox for 32-bit hosts is the 5.2.x series, you should stick to that.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.

If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.

I read that as the OP running Windows Server 2003 as a guest not the host. Some clarification needed.

My crystal ball is currently broken. If you want assistance you are going to have to give me all of the necessary information.
Please don't ask me to do your homework for you, I have more than enough of my own things to do.
