Installing Windows 2008 R2 - fails

Reported by: JoseSalas Owned by:
Component: USB Version: VirtualBox 4.2.4

Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows


I have the following setup:

  • MacBook 13" - Late 2008 Model with Mountain Lion 10.8.2
  • I connect to a Windows 7 PC using RDP
  • On the Windows 7 Desktop, I have Virtual Box 4.2.4 r81684
  • When I try and create and install a Windows 2008 R2 (Enterprise Edition) VM with the following configuration: Hostname: OS: Windows 2008 R2 (64 Bit) - Simple Image RAM: 3072 MB CPU's: 2 Hardware Virtualization: VT-x/AMD-V  &  Nestad Paging Extended Features: IO APIC  &  absolute pointing device Boot Order: NIC, CD/DVD-ROM, Hard Disk Display: 32 MB RAM (no 3-d acceleration) Storage:
    • Hard Disk - OS:  SATA Port 0 - 75 GB - Normal (VDI) - Fixed Size Storage
    • Hard Disk - Shared Storage: Sata Port 1 - 100GB - Shareable (VDI) - Fixed Size Storage Audio: Enabled with Intel HD Audio Network:
    • Adapter 1 Bridged: Public NIC using Intel 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection - on Intel Pro / 1000 Desktop (82540EM) -- MAC: 08:00:27:D8:D9:B1
    • Adapter 2 Host-Only Adapter: Private NIC (shared to local VM's - with VBox's built-in DHCP Server) -- MAC: 08:00:27:7D:0E:13 No Serial Ports USB: Enabled - but no devices mapped Shared Folders: None Setup - but available

Windows starts the initial install - but fails with:

  • Cannot copy drivers

To get around this - I must do the following: -- Set the OS to: Other Windows -- Disable USB AND Serial Ports -- I have not re-enabled them after the install - but will attempt that

This only happens on:

Hardware Details: Dell Optiplex 790 Intel Core i5-2400 @ 3.10 GHz RAM: 8.00 GB System Type: 64-bit

Running Windows 7 Professional - SP1

This does not happen on my MacBook - it's limited to this Dell (That I know of)
