If the motherboard was exactly the same then I agree there was no need to re-install the OS. If it was a different board then that could be another matter as the OS would not see the hardware it was expecting from the initial install.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

No, it will not harm the disc. If it has any detrimental effect at all it would be like a pea on an ocean.

If you say what VM you are installing maybe someone on here will be able to help somehow.

Simple answer - no.

All you're doing in effect is creating a whole slew of folders/files and then deleting them each time.

re' your virtual machine creation... How are you trying to do it, and what seems to happen each time - error messages etc.,?

I've been using the oracle virtualbox before and it worked very well,after that when i have changed the motherboard and cpu,tried to start it and it showed a message like this:"This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot – please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU" and i realized that i need to enable the virtualization from BIOS for the board,done that,installized again,the whole installation went well,but when i try to boot the machine,it only shows a black screen,i don't know what's the problem now....

After you changed the motherboard and CPU you presumably installed an operating system such as Windows 7. If so did that work before you tried to install a VM?

Have you tried other VM's?
If you reinstalled the VM did you reinstall the guest OS as well? Or used/copied existing guest OS.

after the change of board and cpu,there was no need to reinstall the OS,disk was the same.I reinstalled the VM and guest OS also,now i will try with another VM,and keep you updated.
