legacy DOS editor hangs VM

Reported by: f5inet Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.2 Keywords: dos text editor
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


launching ET.EXE (Renamed MED.EXE) inside windows guest (tested windows XP SP3) results in guest machine completely freeze. ET.EXE works flawlessly on real hardware (windows XP desktop). i think that is something wrong with realtime clock or VGA text color BIOS support (inside virtualized Guest, of course). ET.EXE is zipped and attached. The legacy program is public domain.

Bug confirmed.

Host: Win XP, Intel Core 2, VBox 3.2.6

Guest: Win XP

Crash happens only with soft-virt. It works with VT-x. Component should be changed to "VMM".

Please up priority to critical, because VM freezes, then crashes.
