Ticket #4348 (closed defect: fixed)
unable to start Windows 2000 installation with IO-APIC enabled -> fixed in SVN/3.0.2
|Reported by:||fuUser||Owned by:|
I tried to install Windows 2k and it fails after loading all drivers and before you can select the drive/partition. It shows something like "starting Windows 2000" and dies with 100% CPU-load on one emulated core. The problem can be tracked back to IO-APIC support, which is needed for SMP support. Setting it to 1 CPU and deactivating V-tx but leaving IO-APIC on doesn't solve the problem.
Host: Windows Vista x64 SP2, Intel Xeon X3220 (Quad-Core), 8GB RAM Guest: Windows 2k (Installer) with integrated SP4
