Am unable to start a virtual machine that was created using Virtual PC 2007 that has now been copied & configured to be opened by Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 (screenshot). How can I fix this?

According to an article that I read, http://blogs.msdn.com/b/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2006/02/21/534837.aspx, there should be no problems doing this.

The host computer is running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server SP2.

What do I need to do to fix this "Error retrieving value for "settings/shutdown/quit/action" from configuration "Server-2003". The value "4" is invalid for this configuration key." error?

If I were you I would just create a new VMC (virtual machine config) - from Server 2005 and point it to the relevent VHD's you have copied across - the error is probably a VMC file foible only.

Only thing really important is getting the drives in the right order, which should be simple enough.

The machine will likely detect new hardware, including the NICs, which will need the correct IP's plumbed back in.

hope this helps.

I rebooted and now I get this new error (shown in the screenshot).

What can I do to fix this so that I can boot into my Server 2003 Virtual Server?

Is the VServer (bartelsrv01) the machine you are on there ?
has that machine got it's DNS pointing correctly to a DC ?

I would check the event log for something more tangable...

those erros just look like the virtual machines being reconfigured, what happens when you try to start ?
