Floppy needs remounting for every diskette

Reported by: DaveLovesVBox Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 2.0.6 Keywords: floppy invalid media abort
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Windows


Host XP-Home-SP3. VBox for DOS. Using DOS 6.22 and trying to install win3.1 from 5 floppies. Floppy drive Mounted OK. Run VBox and boot to DOS 6.22 on drive C: so far so good. Insert first win3.1 floppy and run setup, still fine. Setup asks for second floppy, I eject the floppy DISK1, insert Disk2, hit "Enter" as instructed by Setup and I get "Invalid media. Abort, Retry, Fail" At this point VBox hangs and I have to shut it down.
