    I have created a VHDof my server using disk2vhd software and trying to open the VHD file in Oracle Virtual box but it is not opening.
    Giving error: A problem has been detected and Windows has been shutdown to prevent the damage of the computer.

    Source machine : Windows Server 2003(For created VHD)
    Target machine where Oracle Virtual box has been installed is Windows Server 2008R2.
