Ticket #3094 (new defect)
have to remove vbox modules to restart windows xp guest
|Reported by:||brian||Owned by:|
On the same host that runs virtualbox which I have filed tickets 1923, 1299 I have an additional problem. It seems that if I start my windows xp guest first time after a boot it starts fine. A subsequent boot of the winxp guest (i.e. after I have done a restart/shutdown in the winxp guest) will hang on startup at the winxp splash screen. I then have to stop the winxp guest, "rmmod vboxnetflt vboxdrv" and them modprobe them back in and restart the guest to have it working again.
BTW: this is also the host/guest where the mouse capture doesn't work, but that might be related to the ticket where adding the guest additions fails for some silly reason. It would appear that whoever was working on that issue simply threw up his hands in defeat.
