The entire guest application crashes when I try to boot a custom compiled "very minimal" 2.6.28 kernel.

I will attach the kernel configuration.

If I try to boot the stock Debian kernel, everything is perfect.

I have an ext2 boot partition, with GRUB installed to the MBR. The GRUB command I am trying to boot is: root (hd0,0) kernel /bzImage-2.6.28 root=/dev/hda2

I have: ext3 filesystem PCI bus ATA/IDE driver Intel PIIX driver

all built into the kernel, to eliminate the need of an initrd.

/dev/hda1 is my ext2 boot partition. /dev/hda2 is my ext3 root partition.

My VirtualBox setting are default. The IDE controller type is PIIX4. I only have a network apdater enabled, attatched to NAT. I do not have shared clipboard, shared folders, remote display, USB, serial, audio, floppy or CD-ROM enabled. I do not have the SATA controller enabled. I created a flat static 4.0 gigabyte virtual hard disk with the virtual disk manager.

Here is a screenshot of the crash.

If any other information is required, please let me know.
