@rokytnji: Why did you decide to just stop? No need to multiboot, or just decided on a particular distro and didn't feel like messing around with others?

So yeah, I'm like Dapper Dan or OZ or Jay or TBob or Gruven where I finally settled on one size fits all. Which for me is AntiX.
It needs no re-install like Ubuntu. It is a rolling release based on Debian Testing or Unstable (depending on me/preferences in /etc/apt/sources.list). I know Mint LMDE and Crunchbang and Semplice fall into these catagories also for Debian Spinoffs (plus others I am sure). I just have a personal relationship with the AntiX developer which I cherish. To each their own though.

On just one machine, I dual boot CRUX and Windows XP. The only thing I need XP for is the script writing software Final Draft. It used to work in XP in a virtual machine but since the last upgrade it won't. What's maddening is that Final Draft works perfectly under wine except that it forgets it's a licensed install when you close it out and re-open it. This would be such an easy fix if the company would get behind its use under wine but they won't. They won't port it over to Linux either.

If i was you i would re-install your VM manager again with the latest software and see if that fixes your problem.

I've found a really good alternative. After posting the above, I decided to give it another search and found Fade In. It's ported to Windows, Mac and Linux and the interface is more intuitive and streamlined than Final Draft. Importantly, it imports and exports Final Draft (the industry standard) so I can send scripts to others in FD format. I've already experimented with this and it works without problems. Fade In costs but hey, they port to Linux so that alone is reason enough to support them. I've pestered Final Draft for years about porting to Linux but they have zero interest. Their loss...
