Windows updated, now virtual box session won't open

Post by Growth »

I bought a 2TB SSD to begin my node journey for my laptop, only to find it's most compatible with Raspberry Pi 4 lol

Anyway I went down the option of running mynode on a laptop with virtual box. Whilst syncing 80% way through the computer restarted, now the session will no longer open. It seems this would not be a sustainable way to run mynode as with real funds they could be quite easily lost if the session can not be restored.

Does anyone have any ideas to restore the session?

Cheers

Hello. I think virtual box session is fine for testing, but I don't think its very viable as a long term node unless you can keep it on machine 24/7 running without crashing and other restarts. Dedicated hardware / raspi is the good way to go.

I'm not sure what is your issue with the session. Can you provide more details? Does the VM not boot, or there is an error mynode is giving you or something else?
