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.

    I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any coding knowledge to make your

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you should publish more about this
    subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but typically folks don't speak about these subjects.

    To the next! Many thanks!!
