Frequent and Random crashes of Linux 64 bit guests on Windows 7 64-bit

Reported by: brthomasusa Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


Installed SLES 11 64-bit guest on Win7 64 bit host. Guest crashes while installing

Oracle 11g. Repeated the process 4 times with the same outcome. Tried installing

openSUSE 11.1 64-bit. VM crash twice during installation. Downgraded to VBox 2.2.4
and was able to successfully install SLES 11 and Oracle 11g (everything is 64-bit).
Upgraded VBox to 3.0.2 successfully. After about 36 hrs of continuous operation, VM
crashes during SLES logout. Host machine is AMD Phenom 9950 running at 2.8ghz. It

has 8gigs of RAM, 3gigs dedicated to VM, and video ram is 128megs. The VM is

configured to use a raw disk - a 160gig Western Digital SATA2 drive accessed through

IDE drives. Have tried using SATA and SCSI drivers, with no improvement to VM
stability. Bottom line, the VM is stable with VBox 2.2.4 and unstable with 3.0.2.
Also virtualization is enabled in the bios and acpi is enabled in the VBox VM

settings dialog window.

Indeed. Check VBox 3.1.4 when released, it has a bunch of stability fixes.
