Virtual machine freezes upon mounting iso file when serial port is enabled

Reported by: axelitus Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 2.1.4 Keywords: serial port freeze iso mount cd-rom cd rom
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


When a serial port is configured in the guest (Windows Server 2003 Standard) as host device (host: Windows7 Beta build 7000) the virtual machine crashes upon maounting an iso file as the CD in the guest's CD-ROM. This happens when the machine is ON only; when it's off everything works fine.

My Serial Port configuration is as follows: Port 1 enabled Port Number: COM1 IRQ: 4 I/O Port: 0x3F8 Port Mode: Host Device Port Path: COM3

When I enabled the Serial Port I had to install the hardware in windows 2003, it was not autmatically recognized. Everything seems to work fine as long as I don't load any ISO image.

This still happens in VirtualBox 2.2.0!

I have a Serial Port active as Host Device COM1 linked to host's COM3 (same config as above).

When I change the CD-ROM and set an image or a host's device, the virtual machine freezes. This happens (as far as I can tell) only when I have the COM port active...
