Ticket #4255 (closed defect: fixed)
Windows XP Guest's Clock runs slow when other Guest VMs are running
|Reported by:||cuddihyd||Owned by:|
- Boot my host machine.
- Start VirtualBox.
- Start my Windows XP VM. ...I observe the clock is within a second of host's clock. Good!
- Start a second VM (apparently could be anything: Another Windows, Ubuntu, BSD,...doesn't matter)
...As soon as the second VM starts, the Windows XP VM's system clock falls behind.
- Stop the second VM.
...As soon as the second VM stops, the Windows XP VM's system clock races ahead until its caught back up with the host's clock.
