  • transfered 100MB out of 4.5GB data in 1:18 minute, then vbox froze
  • when vbox freeze, it does not use any CPU as shown in "top"

This is a show-stopper as Ghost is the only ways to setup company-standard Windows images where I work.

With virtualbox 1.4.1beta on OS X I tried to boot a Linux liveCD with Ghost running in doesemu.

The restore went fine but windows failed to boot saying "error reading disk".

A floppy image designed to support multiple network cards with Ghost fails to boot.

Looks like there is no ghost for us yet.
