VirtualBox crash when finishing installation of a Fedora 17 guest on a Windows Vista host

Reported by: terje7601 Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.0 Keywords: fedora
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


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 ( ) 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.

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by terje7601

This is reproducable with Fedora 17 on 4.2.10

I also have this issue with every VirtualBox 4.2 release.

This issue has been reported multiple times with multiple Linux distributions:

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by ekerazha

Please note that this is not Fedora 17 or Windows Vista specific, I can reproduce the issue with multiple Linux distributions on Windows 8.

If these issues are not going to be fixed, why not just shutdown VirtualBox down for good?

Same issue with windows 8 (and windows 8.1) host with centOS6.5 live or bin cd installs (using centOS6.5 32bit in all cases).

CentOS 6.5 install (any) will crash VirtualBox in the same manner as this bug describes. I've repeated this many many times. (win7/vista compatibility modes, admin priv..., etc..) Once, windows locked up. (couldn't repeat the lockup, just the crash is repeatable.) Host Machine is a Lenovo ThinkPad Twist (model S230u). VB version 4.3.6 r91406.

I got same issue when install OracleLinux 6.4 on Windows 7 host, 64bit. After first packages installation complete, click reboot, Vbox crash, then after reboot, and kdump setup, click finish, VBox crash. Tried Vbox 4.3.8 and 4.2.24, same result. Also tried to remove the VM, and then re-create the vdi on different filesysytem, re-install, but still same result.

wzisinfo, do you have a minidump available?

Fixed a problem with identical symptoms by disabling 3D acceleration.

comment:16 Changed 4 years ago by EscapeArtist

I've got the same problem (Windows 7 host/Debian guest). Turn of 3D and the problem goes away. This doesn't necessarily happen during install. It happens every time I power off the virtual machine. Every time.

If I have 3D enabled and power off the guest, and then when it crashes on the host, if I do not click "Close the application", then my event system in Windows slows to a crawl: the mouse moves slowly and keyboard entries are received by whatever program at about 1 every 5 seconds or so until I can get to close the application. The second the application is close, Windows becomes responsive again.
