Could not open VirtualBox hard disk

After a fresh install of Windows, I had to reinstall VirtualBox. Starting the virtual machine for the first time after that resulted in an error of not being able to find the hard drive.

This forum thread on the VirtualBox forums explains how to fix it.

The solution involves editing the .vbox file with a text editor and removing the <AttachedDevice> section.
