It suggests using the original XP Pro CD-ROM and selecting "r"

Fine and dandy. I even have an old XP Pro disk from an old machine, but it doesn't work in this case. And, of course, there were no disks with my Win 7 Pro machine and I haven't done a proper backup in awhile.

My VM experience is with Virtualbox on Linux hosts, but your issue has me curious. Will doing a system restore on the Windows 7 host also take the XP guest back to an operational state?

Also, what does happen when you try that old XP disk? Is the disk not recognized by the VM, or does it not treat the disk as bootable, or does it try to boot but fail?
