Windows 7 guest on OSX 10.7.5 host fails

Reported by: carnun Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.2.8
Keywords: OSX Windows Virtualbox Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


Over the last day I am unable to startup my Windows guest that I have been using for a long time. Originally it failed on VirtualBox 4.2.6, but now I have upgraded ro 4.2.8 and it still aborts. The error message is copied below. I have tried enabling and disabling 3D acceleration as some of the forums suggest that is a workaround but have had no success. The only major upgrade I done over the last week is to move to the latest Java version for OSX. I need to use this VM to perform work so this is becoming a serious issue to me.

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine DemoWin7x64.

No error info.

Result Code: NS_ERROR_CALL_FAILED (0x800706BE) Component: ProgressProxy Interface: IProgress {c20238e4-3221-4d3f-8891-81ce92d9f913} ---

Note that I have a Linix based file server that successfully runs on the same Guest OS.

I have now successfully started the Windows VM, the only change being that I stopped the application called HandBrake that was running in parallel on my OSX Guest OS. Handbrake was backing up DVDs to my hard drive and carrying quite a high CPU load....
