Bluescreen restoring from Storagecraft

We're trying to do a test restore of our SBS 2008 using Virtualbox and Shadowprotect image backups.
This used to work before and it just started happening for some reason.

Shadowprotect 3.5
VirtualBox 3.2.12

Production SBS server - physical
Restore to virtual machine using VirtualBox

Please see attached for the BSOD error.

I've searched and found that a hotfix could fix the issue, deleting the bootcache file, I tried all of those and none seem to work.
I'm just worried that the production server would BSOD once its restarted as well.

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, my thought was the VirtualBox (VB) driver/vHardware may have changed or been upgraded via StorageCraft updates?

Create a new FULL backup and run the VB step to boot the backed up server.

Does it work then? Perhaps one of the incremental backups has some bad bits?

What has changed? Are there updated drivers needed for VirtualBox that need to be installed in SBS 2008?

Thanks but your posts are mostly for restoring to HyperV.

Nothing has changed really. Possibly some updates here and there, last time it worked was April.. from trying other images, it looks like all May backups are affected.

nope.. nothing has been changed with VB.

And yes, i'll be testing that tonight.

Where are the SP images being stored that VB is using to boot the backup?

Perhaps some disk corruption may be happening on either the host or the backup storage?

creating new full backups did the trick.
