Ticket #3025 (closed defect: fixed)
Windows Host, Win XP Guest VHD corrupted after with 2.06 and 2.10
|Reported by:||dahcto||Owned by:|
Tried on VirtualBox 2.06 and VirtualBox 2.1. I converted a Virtual PC dyanmic .VHD to use with VirtualBox. Uninstalled VPC additions, reactivated, reinstalled VBox Additions. XP SP 2 to start. Ran Windows update and kept failing on SP3 (update or downloadable). Traced problem to VHD corruption. Found that files written to disk were getting corrupted. I kept going back to good copies and updating until there was a problem. The corruption issues seemed to appear when over 4GB (started at 2.8GB). I saw other issues with .VHD and 2.1 so went back to 2.06 an retried. Converted the .VHD to fixed and then to a .VDI, then back to dynamic. Ran through the update process again. Everything works fine as a .VDI. Installed SP3+ all updates. File size grew to 6GB+. Dynamic .VHD was corrupted at over 4GB until I changed to using a dynamic .VDI instead. Even downloading the SP3 (316MB) file or a small 5MB file corrupted the drive when it was in the failure mode.
