Hello

I apologize if this issue was already answered, but I couldn't find it.
I've also read this but it didn't work.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro (64 bit), I've made a VHD file of my old Windows XP Pro SP3 (32 bit), with "Prepare for use in Virtual PC" option checked.
I've created new virtual machine, attached this file, but every time I try to run it on Virtual PC (the one integrated into Windows7) I get a message:

"'[Virtual machine name]' was unable to write to one of its virtual hard disks"

I'm not sure what's wrong, I have a regular XP virtual machine, and it works fine, and the VHD file isn't read only, has all the permissions. File is on my HDD (1st partition). I really don't know why it won't run, could you give me a hand?

Thank you in advance.
