Ticket #2882 (closed defect: fixed)
Windows XP converted from VMWare Freezes with SATA Disk Attached
|Reported by:||kronenpj||Owned by:|
I have a VMWare Windows XP guest converted and running in VB on 3 IDE disks. I've installed the Intel Matrix SATA drivers (v126.96.36.1997) and several other previous versions. The SATA controller is seen and everything behaves as long as no disks are connected to the virtual SATA controller.
When I connect a 2GB, VB-created disk formatted with NTFS, the guest OS never fully boots. By never fully boots, I mean it goes as far as displaying the XP logo with the slider graphic moving and never progresses to the login screen. It was formatted as an IDE disk originally and re-connected to the SATA 0 port.
I've done a fresh install with IDE, installed the Intel 188.8.131.527 drivers and have been able to reconnect the disk as SATA and it's working happily. So I know the drivers and disks work. I was also able to see and use the 2GB disk mentioned above. I've captured IDE-only and IDE with SATA logs and attached them here. What other information can I give to make this bug useful?
