I shut my VM down in a hurry earlier today - bad move it seems.

Now, when I try to boot it, it comes up with an unrecoverable error. The log file says something about 'disk error while paging'. Any ideas? Any way out?

It's a Windows 7 Host and a Ubuntu Guest. (I don't think this makes any difference though...)


  • I ran a chkdsk /r on the host but it made no difference

Per this article,, I deleted the vmem file and the machine restored fine!
