Host type: Windows



yesterday cam e out the official Windows7 RC1. If you setup the system on your hostsystem and try to boot/install your hole system crashes/freezes complete. Some other users can acknowledge this.

Thats crazy, i didnt expect that the compelete system will screw up. Thats hard.

I have Windows 7 RC1/x64 running fine on Windows XP SP2, 32-bit, VirtualBox 2.2.2.

Is your guest OS 32-bit or 64-bit?


comment:2 Changed 9 years ago by Hexxer


it is a 32bit Host.

What is bitness of Guest OS?

This is because your HOST processor is 32 bit. Mark me if im wrong, but the GUEST os uses the HOST os's processor. So you will have to install a 32 bit version. I am running a 32 bit Windows 7 RC1 just fine because I have a 32 bit processor and i installed a 32 bit guest version.

Thanks, Dogo Josho

Dogo Josho : Either way it should not crash the host.

Hexxer: Please attach VBox logs.


comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by Technologov

No response, no logs were attached plus I have VBox 3.0.10 running on Win7/x64 host.

Please close.
