dual boot problem lucid/XP after vbox clone xp vm
I am a noobie, who has messed up big time. I have a dual boot configuration of XP and Lucid (upgraded from Karmic last night). Everything worked perfectly, including the preservation of my XP virtual machine (not to be confused with the dual boot version of XP). Having had only one XP VM, I tried to clone it. I found a link that would allow me to create a clone of the VM without the necessity of reinstalling the OS manually (and all the apps) here:
This worked fine after using the "VBoxManage internalcommands sethduuid <name of new xp.vdi>". I now have two XP VMs.
However, it seems to have messed up my ability to boot into xp from grub2. Lucid boots up fine, but XP (which is on sda1 in grub) just leaves a blinking cursor. My suspicion is that it has something to do with the UUID.
I found this info if it helps:
~$ sudo blkid
<-- this is the one I am trying to boot into
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="MS2 S750" UUID="D6488C304
<-- this is another hd with xp, which i also cannot boot into
Any help is greatly appreciated!
