Description

Many User in the forum report an error in cooperation with gigabyte mainboards. Wirtualbox seems to generate an error on all gigabyte mainboards. For example, if i want to install windows xp in virtualbox with an asus mainboard it works, but if i use a new mainboard from gigabyte i get bluescreens and can't install windows xp under virtualbox.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to duplicate

Most likely a bios issue if you have an AMD cpu who's SVM capability is turned off by the BIOS itself. This has already been fixed.

i'm using an intel core 2 duo 6850 on the gigabyte p35-dq6 - no amd cpu and no svm?!

Which host OS are you using? Blue screen implies Windows, but I'd like to be sure. When do you get this blue screen? Right at the beginning, later on during install? Can you run any other guests (e.g. Linux)?

The gigabyte reports I've seen so far are all with AMD cpus.

host is windows xp professional sp2 ...if i want to install windows xp in virtualbox i get the bluescreen ...if start the installation once more and once more and once more...it is possible but not sure that i come to the end ...this costs a lot of time and then the bluescreen comes if i want to start windows xp in virtualbox.

the error message: STOP: 0x0000007F (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

the same hardware on an asus mainboard works, get the error since i have this new gigabyte board.

Are you able to turn off VMX/hardware virtualization in the gigabyte bios? If so, try it.

comment:9 Changed 7 years ago by sandervl73

Also, does your system crash the second you try to launch a VM or after some time only?

comment:10 Changed 7 years ago by ihng

disable vmm in bios = same problem

system crashs different times within windows installation and if i have a lot of time and do it till the installation is complete i get the error if i want to start the vm!

comment:11 Changed 7 years ago by sandervl73

That's really strange. Have you tried turning off network, audio and usb for the VM? Maybe there's a host driver in your system that blows up.

updating today from bios.F4 to the new bios.F5 and it works :)

I see the same error with XP host on Dell laptop when starting a VM. Error message: STOP: 0x0000007F (0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

After several retries, the guest OS (Windows 2003 server) boots and works normally. I had the same issue even when installing the guest. But, there is no guarantee how long or if ever the guest will boot if I shut it down. Any resolution or work around?

Forgot to mention that I'm using version 1.6

comment:17 Changed 6 years ago by sandervl73

Try again with 1.6.2.

I also experience a blue-screen issue with my new Gigabyte motherboard (ga-ex38-dq6). I have Vista Home Basic (32bit) as host and Debian (etch) as guest. Everything runs fine until I put system to sleep with running (or paused) VirtualBox session. After resuming it shows blue screen after I try to touch anything in VirtualBox. However, it looks like the bug disappears if I disable hardware virtualization in VirtualBox's settings. Upgrading to the most recent BIOS version does not help. I use version 1.6.2.
