look in the original folder in which your VM was created.

What you've done ? You've created a VM using a PC and move it to your MacBook ?

Give me more details ....

Hello,

I created a virtual machine on my mac and installed xp in there. I had a bit of trouble with the leo 10.5.2 update and after I got that cleared the virtual machine says

"Datei nicht gefunden: Windows XP-000002.vmdk, Diese Datei wird zum Einschalten der virtuellen Maschine benötigt. Wenn diese Datei verschoben wurde, geben Sie den neuen Speicherort an."

This is in english: "file not found, Windows XP-000002.vmdk. This file is needed for turning on the virtual machine. If you moved this file, indicate where it is."

I did not move anything but I erased the installation file, perhaps this is the problem. Is there a solution? Thank you very much....
