Windows 7: XP Mode - can't start a virtual machine

XP Mode - can't start a virtual machine


I have been using the XP Mode for ages without issue. I created a quick machine to test an installation and now I can start the original machine.

Windows 7 was constantly saying that the machine was running even though the it wasn’t and I got an error stating the virtual machine could not be started.
I managed to shut it down and now when starting it up again I get the progress bar that gets to about half way through and it the goes back to the start.
Any help would be very much appreciated!
