This message is referring to the vm's system disk, a .vhd file, which is just another
file as far as the host OS is concerned.

1) Make sure that the disk with your virtual machine disk file is not full or write-protected
2) Check permissions for the .vhd file, it will need to have "modify" for both the XP mode and the user who is trying to start the vm.
