I had Windows XP working in VB OSE v1.5.6 on Linux Ubuntu Hardy. I have installed a fresh new Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 with VirtualBox v2.2.2 (non OSE) and imported the VDI image of windows but Windows crashes with the famous blue screen. See the print screen and VB log file.

Change the IDE type to PIIX3. Newer version of VirtualBox have a different default IDE type. Windows will blue screen if it finds another IDE device than expected.
