Ticket #2924 (closed defect: fixed)
Red Hat ES3 64bit does not run on VB 2.0.6

I have installed Red Hat ES3 on a VirtualBox 2.0.6 running on a AMD 64bit. I tried Solaris 10 x64 and Vista Business x64 as host system, but both show the same behaviour.
The installation works fine, but when I try to boot the guest I get a constant stream of error messages:
"hda: DMA interrupt recovery" and "hda: lost interrupt"
Due these messages the system takes hours to boot and is virtually unusable. I did a complete system update (which takes about 3 days) but the error messages still appear. I tried to install the VBox Additions but that fails.
I raised a support case with Red Hat (Service Request: 1874786) and they confirmed this behaviour.
I have no problems running RHEL3 32bit and RHEL5 64bit.
