VMware or VirtualBox : Error loading operating system

Rate this item
(0 votes)

So I decided to move virtual machine from VMWare to VirtualBox. After reading that VirtualBox can directly work with vmdk files, I created new virtual machine, connected image and launched it…

Then I was surprised by: Error loading operating system. I thought: “What nonsense.” I turned off VirtualBox and turned on VMware, but again same mistake...

I spent several hours before finding solution to this problem. All actions were performed under VMware. I loaded to CD VMware image of Windows 7 Ultimate (Windows 2008 Server will do the job as well) and set boot from it. After launch and selecting language I selected recovery mode. Then I selected command line launch and typed the following commands:

> bootsect /nt52 ALL /force /mbr
> bootsect /nt60 ALL /force /mbr

Having done that, restart and get a working system.

Moving from VMWare to VirtualBox was done more safely using VMware import/export wizard.
