    Did the location of the virtual disk change?

    Okay, try deleting the virtualized machine (NOT the vdi disk)

    Then, just make a new one and use the XP vdi when it asks what disk to use.

    but erasing the VM will erase all my data and work on the xp...

    EDIT:

    You may want to wait until somebody else comes to look at this thread, to make sure that the solution I have proposed is safe.

    I have successfully completed this task in the past, but your results may vary and I don't want you to lose all of your hard work over a mistake.

    Re: Virtual XP not accesible

    I believe the solution that I proposed will only work if you haven't taken any snapshots of the virtual disk.

    I will investigate further and contact you as soon as I find something out.

    Take Care

    Re: Virtual XP not accesible

    Well.. i appreciate that would it be help that i copy the configuration file here or something? and by the way it has a snapshot but when it said that the machine was unaccesible i entered the disk manager and said the problem was "diferencial" so there said remove snapshot so i did but nothing changed...
    btw.. the disk is mounted and on and connected, i can acces all my files and i can see the vdi and everything but i cant access it....
    EDIT
    SOLVED YAAAY
    i turned the disk off and entered virtualboxerases the registration from the disk with error and the virtual machine, then connected the disk again and i did a new virtual machine with an existing vdi , the old one and it booted my XP
    THANKS A LOT MAN!
