Starting a virtual machine

After a virtual machine is restored, it is in a turned-off state. You must start it manually. When you start the virtual machine, the OS might prompt to perform an error recovery or record the reason for the unclean shutdown. Usually, you can ignore this message and select the normal boot option.

If you start a renamed virtual machine and a dialog box is displayed that asks whether you copied the virtual machine or moved it, select the I_moved it option, and close the dialog box.
