My questions are will this preform at the same speeds as creating a new partion (gamer so its all about speed :) )? Also was wondering if you defrag your c: if it contained the vhd d: would it mess up the drive in anyway? Lastly i am assuming that you can still access all programs and files installed previously on you normal drive from windows 7?
Step eleven: Click OK, then OK again, then again, then again and then again once more. You should now be out of all the property setting windows for the file we have just taken ownership of and be back in Windows Explorer. It is now recommend that you create a backup copy of the Windows XP Mode base.vhd file, which will be useful to have if you ever choose to restore your Windows XP virtual environment back to a fresh state.
I had had the windows\system32\config\system error before when we also had a power outage while the computer was on - maybe 3 years ago. This recent event was an identical circumstance. I've had hard drives go bad on me before and this situation had none of those signs. 2b1af7f3a8
