VHD disk file location: As Mark told you.
Unless you activated the undo disks when you created the guest and
committed to the VHD after you were done installing XP there is no way
to do that. The way you accomplish restoration is one of:
1. Enable Undo disks and when you close the guest select the "commit"
option in the close dialogue when you have reached the point where you
want to later return.
After this do *not* commit anything to the VHD (you could actually
make the VHD readonly as a safeguard). Instead select the "save"
When you later want to go back to the old state just select "discard"
option on the close dialogue and the undo disk contents will be
flushed and you are back to the virgin state at the next guest start.
2. After you have completed the installation to your satisfaction,
close the guest fully and then make a copy of the VHD file in another
When you want to return to this state later just copy back the saved
copy (with the guest closed).
In both cases you must prepare for later restore by either enabling
Undo Disks and handling them properly or copy the VHD file to a backup
