That fixed the refusing to start entirely problem, however if I enable the "3D" option in the video driver, the VM now refuses to start with:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine XP.
No error info.

Result Code: 
IProgress {a163c98f-8635-4aa8-b770-a9941737f3ef}

The log file is disappointingly unhelpful in this case:
