We have seen this on multiple versions of VirtualBox, all 4.3.2r90405 and up (including one case on 4.3.6).

The VMs are 1GB of memory, 1 to 2CPU, 64 bit CentOS with different setups (all are running primarily Node.JS, but some datastores get installed, such as xtradb, couchbase and dynamodb dev), all hosted on OSX 10.8 and 10.9. In all cases where this crash happened, only one VM was currently running.

An example VBox.log can be found here:

Should I provide more infromation? Anything missing here?

I'd like to second this report. I'm seeing this too. It's on a Mac OS X 10.7 host, specifically a MacPro1,1 (early 2006 hardware) running VB 4.3.8. Guests have been 32 or 64 bit CentOS or Ubuntu OSes. Guest VM doesn't stay up for more than a few hours but usually about one hour, then this VMMR0_DO_GVMM_SCHED_HALT->VERR_INVALID_PARAMETER error.

Host: Mac OS X 10.8.5 (Macmini6,2, Late 2012)
VBox: 4.3.10 r93012
Guests: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS x86 and x64

The guests are either LAMP or just bare Ubuntu Server plus OpenSSH.

Thanks. We think we found and fixed the problem. Could you install this test build and confirm that this Guru Meditation does not occur anymore? Thanks!

Thanks, Frank. I just installed following seeing this error on OS X 10.9.2 and VirtualBox 4.3.10 and it resolved the VM from Guru Meditation to Aborted whereafter I was able to start the VM normally and leave this message containing my first use of 'whereafter' in a ticket.
