Disk Read Error Occurred using VHD => Fixed in SVN/next release

Reported by: hoogie76 Owned by:

Host type: Windows

Description

Using an existing vhd from VPC 2007, created about 4 months ago. Base O/S is Windows Server 2008 and Virtual Instance is XP-SP3. Running VBox 2.1.4

VBox, installed with no errors and mounted XP VHD with no problems. VBox XP instance ran fine, connected fine, all good. Came back from lunch yesterday to find xp instance, black screened with "disk read error occurred" message. Only responds to 'Turn Off'

No reboot or shutdown had occurred to the host, just screen saver. VPC was able to open the vhd and boot but would hang on reactivate windows due to hardware changes.

Restore backup of VHD, all running fine again unber Vbox and VPC (not at the same time)

Start up VBox this morning XP instance runs fine. Go for coffee, come back and XP instance under VBox is black screened with "Disk Read Error has Occurred" message on screen. No host shutdown or restart, screen saver did kick on. XP Instance under VBox only responds to 'turn off'. Restore VHD image again and works under vpc and VBox. Try and reproduce by letting screen saver kick on, but VBox instance is still okay.

Once "Disk read error has occured" message comes up, XP instance running under VBox is not bootable and continually shows "disk read error occurred" message.

VBox.log.1 was original black screen error message. Vbox.log was restart attempt.

Vbox.log.3 was failure from yesterday. Vbox log.2 was reboot attempt from yesterday.

VHD is 12 gig but reports size of 64 gig.

  • Summary changed from Disk Read Error Occurred using VHD to Disk Read Error Occurred using VHD => Fixed in SVN/next release

This should be fixed in the next release. As an alternative you can try out a recent svn version. Thanks for the report.
