Description

Hiya. I have a problem with my Windows XP virtual machine, which it seems started after I had to reconfigure Virtualbox after upgrading Ubuntu to Jaunty 9.04. I can no longer successfully save the machine state, nor can I even power down properly it seems - which ever way I do it, it ends up as "Aborted". It doesn't crash, and I get no error messages, but invariably once it has been shut down, XP is listed as "Aborted". From what I can see when it is trying to save the state, it gets to about 80% or a bit more, disappears, and once again in the control panel it is "Aborted". When I shutdown XP by either the traditional method (ie: via the Start menu) or by telling Virtualbox to send the shutdwon signal, this ends up as "Aborted" too.

Maybe it's not a huge deal, since I can use XP fine, but it does mean it won't remember open windows and programs from the last session, and a few settings I've changed don't immediately get recognised. I won't totally rule out that it could be an issue with the XP machine itself, I will however point out it doesn't seem to be corrupt, as I can use it fine for a bunch of tasks. The only thing I can see that is wrong is that it never comes up as "Saved" or "Powered Off". I just tested a Vista machine I rarely use, and its state was saved without issue, so it really is just the XP machine that is experiencing this.

Others in the Vbox forum have reported the same thing happening, so hopefully there will soon be a fix. Cheers. Frank

Please check if VirtualBox 4.0.4 works for you. There were a couple of fixes for VM termination.

Unfortunately, the problem is still there.

Same here - almost - in my case there is an error message, windows error message saying that "Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager" crashed. It all happens on a specific VM (WinXP), during "save state" or "power down", since a few days (I believe it started after upgrading from 4.0.0 to 4.0.2, then 4.0.4 - didn't fix it), almost every time (perhaps 1 out of 10 works fine).

The main VirtualBox window doesn't close, it's still running, but the VM in question gets "Aborted".

Host OS: Win7 64bit.
