I'm not sure of this, but I get the impression that the OP made his VM image from the mhhauto guide. There are a lot of similarities between the OP's VM and the details mentioned on mhhauto.Thanks for the offer as I didn't know that they could be extracted from the files provided? How would we know if the registry entries are correct?
I was trying to download them from here: https://mhhauto.com/Thread-Porsche-PIWIS-II-18-100-Universal-Image-Step-by-step-guide
Interesting, so the ISO would be essentially a bootable XP based PIWIS? If you are game I would try it.I'm not sure of this, but I get the impression that the OP made his VM image from the mhhauto guide. There are a lot of similarities between the OP's VM and the details mentioned on mhhauto.
I have the VM fully functional on my PC, and I'm able to mount a shared folder between my PC and the VM. I can try copying all the files from the C: drive in the VM to the shared folder. That way I can access the files outside of the VM. Or I could try cloning the VM's C: drive to an ISO image, which you could then try to clone onto an external hard drive that you use to boot your laptop.
After doing a bit of research, .ISO isn't a proper volume image format because it's meant for optical discs (CD, DVD, Bluray) not hard drives. On the plus side, VirtualBox's native disk image file (.VDI file) can be opened or mounted by some common programs such as 7Zip or Daemon Tools Lite. Once mounted, you could copy the files to another location.Interesting, so the ISO would be essentially a bootable XP based PIWIS? If you are game I would try it.
From the MHH feedback and even in this thread, other HW sources (must at minimum get Samtec style) seem to burn out in one or two months. Some mentioned adding a fan to their units. I'm real close to ordering the xcar360 since pricing via PM is less than their posted price.Cool, let us know how the unit from xcar360 works out. I plan on buying a unit soon too, and will need to decide where to get one from.
