Ticket #2134 (closed defect: fixed)
Blue screen with "bad pool caller" error appears

|Host type:||Mac OS X|
After installing Windows XP with VirtualBox the infamous blue screen appears with the message Bad Pool Caller. The system keeps restarting after the error message appears. It is possible to start Windows in the safe mode. I already tried to change several settings in VirtualBox and I tried to install Windows XP with the different settings, but I don't succeed in getting passed the blue screen. I also installed the Guest addition when I was in the safe mode, but that also didn't help.
I hope you can help me, I need Windows XP to run for only 1 program (an accounting package) and it would be much cheaper to run it with VirtualBox then to buy a seperate Windows computer for it.
Thanks in advance.
Best regards, Erwin
