on certain operations of vbox, such as (formatting, or copying some big files) the host system becomes unresponsive -- due to high load of io operations? -- and has to be rebooted (hard).

i've tried to turn of hyperthreading in BIOS as suggested, it didn't change anything. turning off the tickless option in the kernel didn't change anything either.

How much memory has your host? 1GB as guest memory is quite a lot of memory. Try to decrease the amount of RAM and reopen this ticket if the problem persists even with the latest release (2.2.2).
