Does this also happen if you decrease the guest RAM to 8GB (if that's possible with your setup)?

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by guillaje

Actually, the FreeBSD guest uses a 24.5TB ZFS file system that requires at least 24 GB of RAM to run smoothly... (We use it as a backup server.)

I am getting the same error, "Reset initiated by keyboard controller". Host is Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit, guest Windows XP Professional 32 bit. Guest is running with two cores enabled. Virtualbox is 4.2.8, though 4.2.6 had the same problem.

Guest is crashing quite regularly, seemingly on a high network I/O between host and guest and disk I/O on host.

It seems guest is running stable when only one CPU is enabled.

But "reset initiated by keyboard controller" normally means that the guest OS triggered the reboot. mvorlov, I would like to see a VBox.log file for such a VM session.

Here it is. Crashes were rather frequent when running guest with SATA controller (would crash within an hour or two). Turning on/off host I/O cache seem to make no difference. I tried switching back to IDE. It looks like guest is running longer (about 12 hours) before it crashes.

Could the guest reboot just a BSOD which triggered an auto-reboot? Did you disable automatic reboot? See  here.

comment:7 Changed 10 years ago by mvorlov

Frank, With auto reboot disabled VM froze completely (twice) and host is reporting a 100% CPU usage by VM. Does it help?

comment:8 Changed 10 years ago by frank

Hmm, but didn't the guest window show a BSOD in that case?

comment:9 Changed 10 years ago by mvorlov

No BSOD.I tried changing the networking interface from Bridged to NAT with port forwarding - same result. Switching to a different network adapters and disabling Windows Firewall / ICS didn't work either. Each time I got a frozen VM windows with CPU running at 100%.
