MINIX 3.1.5: GPF during boot (only w/ RAW mode)

Reported by: arun.thomas Owned by:
Priority: major Component: VMM/RAW
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.10 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other


MINIX 3.1.5 does not boot under VirtualBox 3.0.10 in RAW mode. It encounters a General Protection Fault during boot and drops back to the boot monitor. This problem does not occur if hardware acceleration is enabled or if RAW mode is disabled (using --norawr0 --norawr3 with VBoxSDL).

To reproduce the issue:

  1. Create a VM using Other/Other as OS type/version. Default parameters are fine.
  2. Mount the decompressed ISO image
  3. Boot the VM and you will see the GPF

You can find the MINIX 3.1.5 ISO here:

Thanks for your help. I'd be happy to help debug the issue.
