MyOldPC, have W2K.vmdk file, what next? 9 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0
I read the MyOldPC User Manual, but it stops at creating the virtual disk file. There is a topic at the end "Launching the Generated Virtual Machine" that needs to be completed.

My neighbor has a new W7-64 machine and a old W2k-32 machine, plus an old USB printer and old USB scanner. There are no W7-64 drivers for these peripherals. Since I need USB support, I tried to load the W2K.vmdk file in VirtualBox using VMLiteWorkstationPluginSetup.exe. It gets as far as showing the W2k splash screen and the moving bar, and then I get the blue screen of death. Tried safe mode, same result.

Is MyOldPC compatible with VirtualBox and the Plugin, or is it only possible to run on VMLiteWorkstationSetup.exe?

Thanks for the help.

Can you post the myoldpcs.log file? by the end, it will see whether the virtual disk has been mounted well. If not, then will have trouble booting up.

It's compatible with VirtualBox/VMLite Plugin. You just need to double click the .mop file to have the vm setup and running on a machine that have VMLite installed.

Also try to change IP APIC from System node of the vm settings under VirtualBox or VMLite.

contents of myoldpcs.log:

Copy partition table sectors: 7e00, num of sectors: 63, partition type: 0x7
DeviceIoControl(IOCTL_DISK_GET_PARTITION_INFO_EX) error: 1
Volume used space: 22.15 GB

Thanks for the info on double clicking on .mop file. That is info I didn't have. That gives a bsod also...

You can let VMLite to try to make it to bootable aagin, follow exactly the following:

(1) start VMLite Wizard from Start menu

(2) on the 1st screen, choose the 2nd option, importing your VMDK file
make sure to uncheck "Make a copy of your disk", so the huge vmdk won't be copied.

(3) follow the wizard to finish, then try to start
