Windows 7: XP Mode Restarted (loop)

05 Oct 2017   #1

windows 7 Professional x64
XP Mode Restarted (loop)

I run the Win7 Pro with a Virtual PC [XP sp3 ]

Recently when I closed the machine, it rebooted itself endless times.
There was a error-message and 2 dumpfiles that I typically cant access right now because its saved in the virtual machine...

And I did a local cmd-
 shutdown /f /s
on it.

So now its offline and closed.
I dont know its state in this moment, dont want to start it if the error comes back.

I really want to know how to deal with it, next time I fire it up...

windows 7 Professional x64


more clear information:

A) I have a windows 7 pro laptop. Host.
B) guest-os is the "XP MODE" inside Virtual PC. guest

C) the virtual xp macine suddenly has a new error.
Everytime i Shut it down by:

(menubar /action/shutdown)

it closes, and then starts again!

D) there is also this error-popup inside the virtual xp machine:

BCCode : ca BCP1 : 00000001 BCP2 : 85


F) So the usual (and only available) way to manage this Windows virtual PC is by the action bar.
Because its a application.

There is no "turn off" or buttons inside the xp. So I guess the problem must be related to the program.

Somehow it sends the start-init command to the machine?

(Inside virtual xp machine i can ofc hit commandprompt and type the shutdown command... But it doesnt fix the root problem. I want to know why)

XP Mode installation Endless loop
I am installing the W7 XP mode. Before I can download anything I must download the WindowsActivationUpdatel.exe and install it. I do that and when I try to download XP Mode again I am told the same thing. I do it over and over and never get out of the loop. What do I need to do?
