Windows XP Virtual Disk problems

This post was originally published on this site

I’ve used disk2vhd to copy the contents of my old Acer Laptop’s hard drive, with Windows XP SP3 installed, to my MSI computer in order to run it as a virtual machine. However, whenever I boot it up, whether it be in VirtualBox or VMWare, I get this error:

I’ve done this with another computer with Windows XP SP2 and that one ran well. This buggy virtual drive is a .vhd file. I have opened the contents of this hard drive myself, and compared the system file with that of the working Windows hard drive, so I can only assume that Windows is having trouble accessing the system file in the first place.

What do I do?
