Cc: Guest type: BSD
Host type: Mac OS X

Description

Compiling world in FreeBSD 6.4 guest makes the virtual machine completely unresponsive. even logging on the console does not work, spawning processes is no long possible. Lots of "g_vfs_done():ad0s1d[WRITE(<offset>, <length>)]error = 6" messages on console with various offsets and lengths (see screen shot) pop up on the guest console before the virtual machine freezes. Host configuration: Mac OS X 10.5.7, virtual disk on external hard disk connected via firewire. VBox.log as well as Screen shot attached.

Replying to aeichner:

Issue looks like #2524. Can you try if the mentioned workaround works for you please?

As in "11.2.1 Windows boot failures (bluescreens) after changing VM configuration ... Most importantly, never disable ACPI and the I/O APIC if they were enabled at installation time."?

Never changed the IO APIC settings (yet). Default settings where ACPI on, I/O APIC off. Will repeat the test in a new VM with different settings tonight.

I have tried it, I set the size to 10mb's and so far so good.

Thanks
