Ticket #12736 (closed defect: fixed)
MacOSX 10.8 Guest crashes after EFI Boot with "Divide" error after upgrading from 4.3.6 to 4.3.8 [FIXED in SVN]
|Reported by:||ThetaPhi||Owned by:|
I know, those requests are closed quite often with "running MacOSX guests is not supported", but this is a new regression with a guest that was running before the upgrade.
See the attached screenshot of the guest window. After failing. The OSX guest is booting with EFI and is an unmodified OSX/Darwin installation, so definitely no Hackintosh! The "Divide error" occurs directly after EFI handling over to Darwin, no additional log output.
The strange thing is: This only happens on one host CPU type (Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X3440 @ 2.53GHz), on my other computer (Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz) the guest starts after upgrading 4.3.6 to 4.3.8 like it did before.
I also attached the VBox log of the failing guest.
This could be related to ticket #8651 - the failing CPU has no SSE4 features, but the working one has. But I did not enable this experimental feature! It is the unmodified guest VM reverted to snapshot that was running before.
After downgrading virtualbox to 4.3.6, it is booting again.
- Status changed from new to closed
