Description

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Good Morning.

I have a machine with the Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit operating system (host) with Service Pack 2 installed, as well as all the updates for this system. The computer has an Intel Pentium (R) Dual CPU T2370 of 1.73Ghz, with RAM of 2.00 GB, in this machine. I created a virtual machine with the Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (guest) operating system, with Service Pack 1 installed, as well as all the updates for that system. The computer has Intel Pentium (R) Dual CPU T2370 and 1.73Ghz, with RAM of 1.22 GB. The virtual machine was created using the version "VirtualBox-5.1.2-108956-Win.exe", since then I have updated VirtualBox with every release version, until the version "VirtualBox-5.1.12-112440-Win.exe ". The virtual machine was in "Save State" in the "VirtualBox-5.1.12-112440-Win.exe" version. When I started Virtual Machine again with the following error message:

00: 00: 47.280263 PGM: Failed to look for handy pages; Rc = VERR_NO_MEMORY rcAlloc = VINF_SUCCESS rcSeed = VINF_SUCCESS cHandyPages = 0x8 00: 00: 47.280287 cAllPages = 0x5624d cPrivatePages = 0x4adb7 cSharedPages = 0x0 cZeroPages = 0xb46d

From the VBox.log:

00:00:15.714275 Host RAM: 2037MB total, 1043MB available
00:00:18.370283 RamSize  <integer> = 0x000000004de00000 (1 306 525 696, 1 246 MB)
00:00:18.371093 VRamSize <integer> = 0x0000000008000000 (134 217 728, 128 MB)

1246+128+overhead >> 1043.

You are assigning memory to your guest, that you do not have available. Either close some applications on the host, buy more RAM for the host, or reduce the amount of RAM assigned to the guest.

May I suggest something? It's usually better and faster, if problems like this one (configuration) get first addressed in the forums ( https://forums.virtualbox.org/). More than 95% of the issues are resolved over there, which keeps the developers focusing on the bug fixes and enhancements, and there is no need for another ticket to keep track of. For example, yours is most probably not a bug and someone from the developers has to deal with it and close it as "Invalid".
