VPC7 Reboot and Select proper Boot device Error

Post by giovann » Thu, 11 Nov 2004 00:21:41


Hey guys, so everything was fine so far with my VPC7 until I renamed
the PC in the PCList to WinXP from something like Unknown Drive.
Anyhow, after that change I can't start the PC because of the error
above. I tried to rename it back except I don't even know what it was
originally called. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

VPC7 Reboot and Select proper Boot device Error

This is easily fixed. You will need to have VPC running, but no VMs
running. The VM you want to repair should not have a save state
either.

1. Open your Virtual PC List folder in ~/Documents
2. Right (ctrl) click the VM in question and 'Show Package Contents'
3. Launch Virtual PC
4. Make sure that no VMs are running. The VM you want to alter should
be shut down (no save state)
5. Open the settings for the VM in question
6. Click the drive 1 setting
7. Drag the Virtual PC hard disk document (often called base drive) to
the text field where the field in the settings panel is
8. Click OK and then close the package.

It should work now.
