I recently discovered a problem with Oracle's VirtualBox that seems to be caused by having snapshots stored in a directory that is not right below the VHD file. I don't know if this affects other virtual disk formats but VBox seems to assume you have this set up:
My Super VM/
My Super VM/Snapshots/
Instead of this standard installation I had my VHD files on a separate disk (H:/ in my case) but forgot to change the snapshot directory so vbox was saving to C:\users\Luke\VirtualBox VMS\VirtualMachine Name\Snapshots and in doing so seems to forget the Parent UUID of the main VHD and give this error:
After some investigation and learning how the IDs are stored in the VHD files I built a tool called SetVHDParentUUID which you can download here
After setting up a fresh 2k8r2 VM I did a round of updates like a good little admin and then got stuck at this:
Stage 3 of 3. Preparing to configure Windows
Why? Well it turns out this is a known bug and there may be a fix available through Microsoft but you can get past the stuck screen simply by pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE

The Yarvik GoTab Zetta 9.7 inch Tablet is a budget device but, like anything, extremely powerful when used properly. The official tech specs are available on the Yarvik website (http://www.yarvik.com/en/products/tab466euk/) but here is my experience with this particular Android tab. First, lets have a few pictures:
As you can see, the tab looks fairly standard and is in the classic Star Trek PADD design. I took these pics on my HTC Desire S and they're pretty terrible so here's a close up of the most fuzzy part showing the rear camera and mystery buttons.
