Cannot Install Windows 8 Pro x64 in VM

Reported by: saberman Owned by:
Priority: blocker Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.0 Keywords: Windows 8
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows

Description

AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ AMD64 Family 15 Model 107 Stepping 2, AuthenticAMD Host: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with all patches

Logged in with a userid with administrator rights.

Started Virtual Box 4.2.0 Created a new VM

Type: Microsoft Windows Version: Windows 8 (64 bit)

Took all the defaults Inserted Windows 8 RTM CD in Host Drive 'D:' Selected Host Drive 'D:' as the drive attached to the new VM

Received a warning that the VM window is optimized to work in 32 bit color mode but the virtual display is currently set to 24 bit

Pressed OK

Saw CD drive briefly actived and the blue window devided into four parts appeared agains a black background. The icons at the bottom right of the window did not show any activity. Opened Task Manager:

The instance of VirtualBox.exe that was the VM:

Using 51-54% of the CPU Rapidly generating page faults A small amount of I/O reads No I/O writes

Powered VM down after about 12 minutes of nothing happening.

I then installed a spare SATA drive in the host and installed Windows 8 Pro X64 on it without any problems. Windows 8 Pro X64 runs fine on the host hardware.

Please try again to install Windows 8 in that VM but enable 'passthrough' mode for the DVD drive. Does that make any difference?

@saberman: I have exactly the same issues discovered in VirtualBox 4.1.18. For more (duplicate) information see Ticket #10700. There is also a link to your comment in the forum: "Windows 8 Reboot Hangs" -  https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=44577&start=360#p228333

Cheers
