Ticket #4131 (closed defect: fixed)
64-bit guest crashes if Nested Paging Enabled (amd-v: PGMPOOLKIND_FREE guru)

|Version:||VirtualBox 2.2.4||Keywords:||PAE Nested Paging Phenom Debian CentOS AMD64 32-bit crash guru meditation|
Any 64-bit guest I've tested has entered guru meditation on startup if the Nested Paging option is enabled. Host OS is Debian "Lenny" x86, kernel 188.8.131.52 with PAE / Nested Paging enabled. VirtualBox is official build from VirtualBox repos, 2.2.4 r47978.
Note that if I disable nested paging (but of course keep PAE), some 64-bit guests will work, e.g. Lenny-amd64 netinst (albeit slowly). Others, e.g. CentOS 5.3 amd64 netinst, fail outright with a guru meditation. See attached crash logs and system inventory for more info.
All the best, -Chris
