Ticket #11004 (new defect)
VirtualBox crash when finishing installation of a Fedora 17 guest on a Windows Vista host
|Reported by:||terje7601||Owned by:|
On a fresh VirtualBox 4.2 install on a Windows Vista host, I created a new VM for Fedora using all the default settings. I then started the VM & pointed it to the 32-bits .iso file of Fedora 17 ( http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/17/Live/i686/Fedora-17-i686-Live-Desktop.iso ) I chose "Install to hard drive", followed the instructions & everything installed just fine. At the end i got a window saying something like "Congratulations! You have successfully installed Fedora. Please reboot" When clicking reboot, the VM crashes: a Windows message with "Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager has stopped working". And when i close the message, the main window of VirtualBox is still open and the status of the VM is "Aborted". At this point i closed VirtualBox & saved the VM log file which you can find in attachment. Note that when restarting the VM again, I eventually get it to boot & the installation seems to have succeeded. If there 's anything else I can do to help resolve this issue, just let me know.
