Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

B.H.

I'm using VBox 3.0.2 on a 64bit Ubuntu 9.04 host. 4 GB of RAM, Intel QuadCore CPU, no hardware virtualization support.

I've installed guest Windows XP home edition (32 bit), installed all updates and SP3, then installed a newly released Skype 4.1.

Skype's installation went without problems, but then, when skype was trying to log me in, after 20-30 seconds of "Logging in..." screen, the host system was suddenly reset without any error message.

After reset, i didn't find any "kernel panic" reports in the logs, the system just died.

The same thing happens every time i try to run skype in the guest.

I've tried to use a NAT networking and also a briged networking with the same results.

I don't currently have a VBox.log to attach, i hope to remember to sent it latter when i get to that system again

Thanks!

Same here... VBox 3.0.2, 64bit Ubuntu 9.04 host, XP Home 32bit guest (AMD X2 5600+, Asus M2N-E SLI, 2GB PC6400, MSI 8600GT OC).

I can't pin it down to Skype exactly but it's only happened while Skype's been running. The last time it happened was when I tried to play an mp3 via VLC (which I use for testing the sound... but that's another headache!).

Same result, host system instantly reset, nothing logged.

gojkok, please attach a VBox.log file of such a VM session immediately before you would start Skype.
