Where did my VM go that I installed?

I installed Virtual Box software on a Server 08 machine.  A VM install of Windows XP on my Server computer went smooth.  I even installed software on the XP VM.  I turned the pc off and back on and now I can't find the VM of windows XP.  To clarify, when I now turn on my Windows Server 08 machine, I have a Oracle VM Virtual Box icon on my desktop.  When I open it, I can't find the XP VM that I installed.   It's as if I never did it.  What did I miss???
Thank You.

Strange. Can you search all your drives on the 08 machine for *.vbox ?

As gerwinjansen has stated it could just be that it's not registered with Oracle Virtual Box, but the VM is still present on the disk, this often happenes *ALWAYS* for me, when I exist Oracle Virtual Box and VMware Workstation on one of our workstations, but the virtual machine disks, should still be there stored on the hard drive, just open them and Power On.

All I can find is one 20 gig partition which I think was created when I had a failed attempt to install another Server VM.  I thought the XP VM partition I created was only 10 gigs and I don't see that.  I'll reinstall XP and pay closer attention.  Thank You.
