Maybe my description was a bit hectic,i'll try to clarify.I am using disk2vhd to convert my current OS into a virtual disk.I cant use the created vhd to boot up in VBox 4.2.10,tried assigning various controllers,am I missing something?I was able to,while on the previous version of VBox,but was prompted to upgrade to newer version and its no go now,any thoughts?
