Never recovered the XP OS, but was able to recover all my data files by booting from Ubuntu to look at the file structure. Copied data files to flash drive, installed new virtual machine, and copied data files to new VM. All data recovered was up-to-date as of system crash date. Eventually deleted crashed VM to free up Mac storage.
