Solaris 4.1.6+ guest additions corrupt boot archive and entire virtual disk

Reported by: rasta Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 4.1.8
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Solaris Host type: Windows


Running Sol 10 u8 x64 guest VM on a Win7 x64 host with Core i7 980x Gulftown processor. VM has 4096 MB base ram, 4 processors selected, PAE/NX, VT-X, nested paging, 1 display with 32 MB vram, with 3d acceleration enabled.

For the past several vbox versions, I have had my boot archive become corrupted when I installed the latest Solaris additions, leading sometimes to complete virtual disk corruption. This is a MAJOR problem.

When installing 4.1.6 additions to replace 4.1.4, the disk got corrupted but I was able to fsck my way out of it.

I cannot install 4.1.8 Solaris additions no matter what. After installs corrupted my virtual disk 3 times in a row, I went back several snapshots to the state when 4.1.4 additions were installed, but still 4.1.8 install corrupted the disk. I get timeouts and read sector errors with Gen-ATA and vn_rdwr failed with error 0x5. Disk became corrupted.

Let me know if you need any further files, info, or documentation.
