Windows XP guest OS does not start

Description

I'm using Ubuntu Trusty. Under VirtualBox 4.3.10_Ubuntu R93012, my other OSs (e.g. Debian, openSuse) startup OK. However, Windows XP (my only Windows OS) starts up OK but then displays a window with details of NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005).

Carried out install of VirtualBox 5.0.2 from LocutusOfBorg's ppa ( https://launchpad.net/~costamagnagianfranco/+archive/ubuntu/locutusofborg-ppa/). Once I'd removed old Extension Pack & installed Extension Pack 5.0.2 from Oracle's site, Windows XPp & other guest OSs started OK.

It's OK on my desktop as detailed above. However, I've just tried the same updates on my laptop. It installs VirtualBox 5.0.2 & its Extension Pack OK. However, starting Windows XP gives a slightly different error: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine WindowsXP. Unsupported version 56 of data unit 'PATM' (instance #0, pass 0xffffffff) (VERR_SSM_UNSUPPORTED_DATA_UNIT_VERSION). Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: ConsoleWrap Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

PS this is logged on Launchpad (for Ubuntu) as bug 1489279

Please attach the VBox.log file of the VM session which fails with VERR_SSM_UNSUPPORTED_DATA_UNIT_VERSION.

Thanks. I think we found and fixed the problem. I have prepared a test build which includes the fix. Could you confirm that this build is able to load your saved state? Thank you! The fix will also be included in the next 5.0.x maintenance release.

Looks like it got further. Error window showed:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine WindowsXP.

The VM session was aborted.

New log file uploaded.

The fix is part of VBox 5.0.4. The other error (!VMCPU_FF_IS_SET(pVCpu, VMCPU_FF_INTERRUPT_PIC) assertion is something different.

Does this mean that I have to create another bug report?

This morning there was an automatic download from  http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian of updated VirtualBox 5.0.4. When I started VirtualBox, it requested download of replacement Extension Pack 5.0.4. I assented and it downloaded & installed it. Afterwards I successfully started Windows XP with VirtualBox. However, it seemed to go to a previous saved version of Windows XP (e.g. it 'lost' AVG AntiVirus). I saved the machine state. I increased the allocated memory from 192Mb to 1024M and started Windows XP again. I then installed Firefox & AVG AntiVirus. Everything now seems OK.
