comment Windows-XP VM fails to boot after import in VirtualBox-4.x
I tried it and it still doesn't boot. I uninstalled all USB devices in Device Manager, shut down the system and disabled USB support in VirtualBox, then started the VM but it still doesn't boot. I think we are not on the right path. What can I do in "Safe Mode" to find out what caused the problem in the last "Normal" boot that failed? Are there any system-logs in Windows-XP that tells what caused the problem?

comment Windows-XP VM fails to boot after import in VirtualBox-4.x
I did run these commands on the target OS in "Safe Mode", but there were no greyed/faded devices! What can I do in "Safe Mode" to find out what caused the problem in the last "Normal" boot that failed?

Can't I do this work only on the target guest, instead of doing it on the first and then exporting and so on ... ?

Looks like no one has anything to add ... So I'm marking this as the answer.

comment Snort error on FreeBSD-9: Unknown preprocessor “ftp_telnet”
No one answered this question in a long time, and all my attempts failed to solve it and the importance of this has now passed for me ... But for anyone else who might face this issue, I think the cause of the problem is that I installed Snort from the ports ... I haven't tried it yet but my best guess is that if I try and install this from source, this problem won't show up ... So, in short: Try installing Snort from source and not from the ports.
