Solaris guest does not boot on VBox2.2 on Vista 64 AMD Turion

Reported by: andrewchen Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: host support
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.0 Keywords: Solaris guest
Cc: Guest type: Solaris
Host type: Windows

Description

Hardware: HP Pavilion dv9000 Host OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit VBox: 2.2 Guest OS: OpenSolaris or Solaris 10 U6

What happens: For OpenSolaris: the OS image 'panic' after selecting the default boot from boot manager. OS can never be loaded. This is regardless if you create the VM for 32 or 64 bit.

For Solaris 10: The OS installation program will run. But after installation, the reboot will lead to the same 'panic' state. Again, this is regardless you choose to create 32 or 64 bit VM.

Please attach a VBox.log file of at least one such failing session, better for both guests. You also might want to try VirtualBox 2.2.2 as this version fixed several annoying bugs.

The attached log file was result of failed OpenSolaris on Vista Home Premium 64 running on AMD Turion x2. This is for the new release VirtualBox 2.2.2

Thanks for this feedback, investigating.

Redhat based CentOS does not boot either. Same Vista host with CentOS5 64bit.

I wonder if this bug is related to the bug I posted (#3666). I am unable to boot or install a Windows XP Pro 64-bit guest. I, too, am running VirtualBox on an HP Pavilion laptop (tx2110us) which has an AMD Turion x2 processor. This behavior began on v2.2.0 of VirtualBox -- it did not happen on v2.1.4 of VirtualBox.

Just tried on release 2.2.4. Solaris still does not install. In fact neither 32 bit nor 64 bit solaris 10 or OpenSolaris installs. And yes this is all since v2.2.0. Previous versions are good. But for previous version (2.1.4), Solaris performance (GUI) gradually slows down until it is impractical to use - few seconds response time for a key stroke.

Replying to andrewchen:

What our problems have in common is that we are both running VirtualBox v2.2.x on HP laptops with Turion 64 x2 processors -- I have a TL-62 and you have a TL-60.
