Ticket #4404 (closed defect: fixed)
Guest fails to boot about 75% of the time
|Reported by:||stephanecharette||Owned by:|
VB3.0.0, host and guest are both Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit.
About 75% of the time, when I attempt to boot the guest, the guest's boot process is interrupted before the GNOME desktop comes up. This only started happening once I upgraded to VB 3.0.0. My linux guest then sits at a command-line window, with text such as:
[ 137.991145] end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector 2414097 init: Unable to execute "/sbin/getty" for tty1: Input/output error init: tty1 main process (1371) terminated with status 255 init: tty1 main process ended, respawning init: tty1 respawning too fast, stopped
If I click on Machine->Reset, the guest window freezes for about 30 seconds and VirtualBox pops up a window with the following text:
"The IDE async I/O thread remained busy after a reset, usually a host filesystem performance problem. ERROR ID: DevATA_ASYNCBUSY Severity: Warning"
If I power off the guest, then eventually I can get the guest to start correctly. Note that this guest uses ext4 (in case that makes a difference).
- Version changed from VirtualBox 3.0.0 to VirtualBox 3.0.8
- Component changed from other to guest smp
