Hi, I have installed virtual box (2.0.2,2.0.4,2.0.6) on windows xp host. Installed Ubuntu guest. Virtual box keeps crashing when i use SATA drive and try to run some disk intensive applications (Like installing oracle in the SATA drive). Have tried the same with Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 with all the above 3 mentioned versions of virtual box. Removing the SATA and having only IDE seems to be working fine without any issues.
Figured this issue to be with the SATA drives after so many permutation and combination of virtual box configurations and guest OS.
