Guest SUSE Linux 10.x causes Windows XP to crash with bluescreen -> fixed in 1.6.2

Description

I often have Windows crashes with bluescreens running SUSE Linux 10.x as a guest. It happenes when:

-- trying to use USB drives;
-- trying to use shared folders;
-- Linux discovers new virtual network adaptor;
-- switching graphics modes.

The crash may also happen withoun any noticable reason and it makes an impression of extreme instability of VirtualBox. I did not have any such issue with VMware or VPC.

I suspect that this instability may be caused by my hardware features (Athlon64X2+nForce570) because my neighbour uses similar hardware and encounters the same instability issues but one of my friens uses all Intel platform and he does not have any problem with VirtualBox' stability.

I also running special applications that may contribute to VirtualBox' instability (my neighbour runs absolutely different such software). Those are:

-- DrWeb antivirus;
-- Sygate Personal Firewall;
-- S.M.A.R.T. monitor.

I tried VirtualBox versions from 1.5.2 to 1.6.0 and all of them caused frequent crashes.

  • Summary changed from Guest SUSE Linux 10.x causes Windows XP to crash with bluescreen to Guest SUSE Linux 10.x causes Windows XP to crash with bluescreen -> fixed in 1.6.2

I found that problem last week. 1.6.2 will include the fix.

Thanks for the report by the way. The minidump was really useful.
