Guru meditation (VERR_VMX_UNEXPECTED_INTERRUPTION_EXIT_CODE) when executing program

Reported by: pimlie Owned by:

Description

I am using VB 2.0.4 on Ubuntu 8.10 where I have a WinXP guest. In XP I have installed the program VCDS from Ross-tech ( http://www.ross-tech.com/). This software is used for diagnostics on VW cars. Installation doesnot require a license key. The software comes with an usb dongle to connect your laptop with your car and the dongle also contains the license key for the software.

When I start this software in WinXP I receive a virtualbox critical error, the status of my guest is Stuck and the Guru went into meditation. This happens both when the dongle is connected and disconnected.

See attached files & screenshot.

Any chance to test this software with VT-x disabled?

Replying to frank:

Right away sir!

Updated VBox to 2.0.6.

Changed VT-x setting to disabled for Windows XP image. VCDS does now executes both with and without usb dongle. Is this known behaviour I have missed?

  • Component changed from other to VMM/HWACCM

Not a known issue but there is a chance that some software work which didn't with VT-x/AMD-V enabled and vice versa. I will leave this bug open anyway. In med term, we will focus on improving VT-x/AMD-V support so this problem will be fixed at some time.
