When I put windows 98 se iso which is itself bootable, immediately, even before anything is read from it, app in my host windows xp os says "VirtualBox.exe . Application Error", "The instruction at "0x77c47631" referenced memory at "0x000c000c". The memory could not be "written"." Click on OK to terminate the program...

This is an all versions. Tested on xp pro sp3 with or without windows updates and addons like net framework, dx, vc redists... I was never since i was born able to install windows 98 while using windows xp.

Windows XP cd boots when used in for win98 settings.

From the User Manual, footnote [1] on ch. "1.4. Supported host operating systems"

Support for Windows XP was removed with VirtualBox 5.0.

So, try with the latest VirtualBox from the 4.3.x series and see if that works. But even that is not supported as well, so I don't think that this ticket will receive any real attention.

Basically you're trying an unsupported OS with an unsupported program. Not that many chances that the situation will change any time soon...

Actually this could be a duplicate of #17340, or vice versa.
