compiled virtual box this morning with additions to run winblows 2003
server. So far it is working better than the xp version which is good
as it is one less reason to have to put in the xp harddrive
Are you trying to run more than one image copied from the same file?
if so use vboxmanage internalcommands sethduuid to change the id of the
second image file as renaming does not do that, and you get an error if
you try to run it.
