When you say install Virtual XP - do you mean in virtual box or on your pc as a normal installation?

Thanks

Default re: Guide to flashing on Windows 7 using Virtual XP without needing a disk

I am struggling to get virtual XP to run. When I try to start the XP Virtual box I get the following message:

Failed to start the virtual machine 2,

Failed to open image 'C:\Program Files\Virtual Windows XP\Virtual Windows XP.vhd'
for writing due to wrong permissions (VERR_VD_IMAGE_READ_ONLY).

Failed to attach driver below us! Image is read-only.
(VERR_VD_IMAGE_READ_ONLY).

PIIX3 cannot attach drive to the Primary Master
(VERR_VDJMAGE_READ_ONLY),

Unknown error creating VM (VERR_VD_IMAGE_READ_ONLY)

Details
Result Code: E FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: Console
Interface: IConsole {Oa51994b-cbc6-4686-94eb-d4e4023280e2}

I have tried changing the permissions of Virtual Windows XP.vhd without success, even though I am Administrator.
I've only just started using Windows 7, so the solution to my problem maybe my unfamiliarity with the OS.

Any thoughts? Thanks

If you have windows 7 only all you need to do is to download virtual-pc using the 1-2-3 process on the link below.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/vir.../download.aspx

This will install windows xp without the need of using a dvd image or cd rom.

You can then use the standard flashing guide to update your mobile phones firmware.

To run virtual-pc on vista your pc must have the following settings enabled in the bios.

Windows Virtual PC requires a CPU with the Intel™ Virtualization Technology or AMD-V® feature turned on. This feature must be enabled in the system BIOS. For details on how to enable, visit the Configure BIOS page or check with your computer manufacturer

Thanks for the link, have you used the XP Image here with Virtual PC, because when a friend showed me that page, and i downloaded the image, Virtual PC wouldnt read it.
You have NO need to use any XP image with what i just posted as it supplied with the virtual-pc setup.
