XP VMWare Fusion to VirtualBox

Post by jstevens »

I converted Windows XP VMWare Fusion to VirtualBox by following these instructions. The conversion went smoothly but I am encountering a challenge when trying to login as the Administrator. When I enter the password, I receive an error message: Did you forget your password?

Part of my problem resolution was to change the password to a numeric "1" prior to converting so I know I can login using VMWare Fusion. Any ideas?
Regards,
John

I wouldn't know if you can get anything from these, but maybe something jumps out at you...

Rudi,

Thanks for the links. I was able to find a resolution on-line using a native VMWare Fusion OVF Tool. Administrator login was successful. One thing I didn't expect was a need to reactivate Windows XP.

John
