I am wanting to mount a VDI file that no longer boots to a drive in Windows to, hopefully, recover some files.
I am aware that Winmount advertises this function, but I am a bit confused about which edition is the best, 32 or 64, as the VDI is a 32 bit image that I would like to mount on a 64 bit OS (Win7).
I am also happy to consider other software, or possibly even using ubuntu to mount to instead, though my Linux skills are not particularly useful.
I have marked surfasb as the answer, as he (she?) directly answered the question I put out there.
For anyone who is having the same problem as I was, try what was suggested by Joe Internet.
Boot VirtualBox into Ubuntu, with the non booting windows VDI attached as a second hard drive (Primary Slave in my case). Despite my totally failing to succeed with this method with another bootable Windows image, booting to Ubuntu happily mounted my dodgy vdi image, and allowed me to recover my files.
