How can I recover the data from a virtual machine file?
Posted on 2011-03-17
I'm running Windows 7 Pro x64. I need to run some apps in XP Mode, so I got that all setup. Just spent the last two days getting these apps installed into the virtual environment. I installed a new video card into my host PC, which necessitated taking the host down, obviously.
Upon booting up the host and then the virtual PC, I get a "No bootable media" error. I check the vmcx file, and it's size is just over 1KB! Is there any chance of recovering the data from this file?
Any way to prevent it from happening again?
