Ticket #5214 (closed defect: duplicate)
VirtualBox 3.0.8 WindowsXP guest aborts (crashes) on OS X 10.6.1 host
|Reported by:||BavarianGuy||Owned by:|
|Host type:||Mac OS X|
The WindowsXP VM runs for about 20 minutes and suddenly aborts.
The memory and virtual memory of the VM process rises up to
1.1 GB and 3.15 GB, although the VM is configured for 512 MB.
This happens after 20 minutes when I start applications in the VM.
Unfortunately, I can repeat this process all day long
(especially running VS 2005 in the VM leads to the memory consumption of the VM process).
It does not matter if VT-X / Nested Paging / PAE is turned on or off.
3D acceleration is not enabled.
The WindowsXP VM was stable until the recent upgrade:
Leopard -> Snow Leopard
VirtualBox 2.x -> 3.0.6 -> 3.0.8
