VM freezes during installation of guest

Reported by: Inds Owned by:
Component: VM control Version: VirtualBox 5.0.2
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Windows


I am trying to install openSUSE 13.2 and in the middle of the installation everything just stalls. I am able to move the mouse around and operate dialog boxes/buttons inside openSUSE but the installation itself completely froze. Process Explorer confirms it where I/O activity completely stops in the middle of loading files. It never stops in the same spot always. Once it got as far as installing half the applications that come with the OS, most of the time it doesn't even make it to the first one.

On average it's about 10 minutes into the session that this happens. Once it stalls, there is no possible way to terminate the VM. If I manage to close the window, the process will remain in memory (and I cant start the VM again). I cannot even normally restart my host PC. I have to press the button on the computer to force restart. If I try to terminate the VM after the freeze, it interferes with the functioning of my host OS. Some programs I can't open at all such as CMD, other operations will be extremely slow and so on.
