Don't forget to install the guest-additions. When you have xp running click on: Devices - Install guest additions in the drop-down menu. That will enable you to resize windows and use it without it capturing the mouse.
i have one problem. i shared folder and now i canot start winxp virtual machine: the error is:
Shared folder host path '/media/BACKUP_' is not accessible.
virtualbox disabled the Seeting button, i canot open seting to disable the shared folder. my shared folder is my external hard drive. my external harddrive is mounted normal on F8 without any problem.
what can i do?
You should be able to edit the shared folders without starting the virtual machine. Just select the winxp virtual machine, click on settings, go to shared folders, and edit/delete the shared folder there. Booting the machine should work next time.
