    Hello,
    XP PRO host
    XP Pro guest

    I have only one DVD/CDROM drive in my system. It works fine in host, however
    in guest the DVD/CDROM icon is accessible (visible) but when trying to
    run/open/explore disk the response is: "Insert disk in drive:"
    Also, I was unable to install guest using bootable CD disk (disk was ignored
    completely) so I created the iso file from it and installed it that way. I
    believe it is a part of the same problem.
    When I uncheck in Settings CD/DVD drive "Attach CD or DVD drive to secondary
    IDE controller" the guest will not boot.
    What can be wrong?
    Jack
