WinXP guest will not boot on Acer Aspire One AO751h

Reported by: tedpoe Owned by:
Priority: major Component: VM control
Version: VirtualBox 3.1.4 Keywords: Z520 GMA500 AO751h XP
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


Windows XP Pro guest will boot properly on other hardware, under both Ubuntu and Vista Home Premium. On Aspire One AO751h, running either Vista Home Basic or Xubuntu 9.10, guest freezes as it is establishing network connections at the 1 minute mark. This is a Z520 Atom processor with GMA500 graphics adapter. The same WinXP guest will properly boot under Safe Mode With Networking on the AO751h.

Can be closed. The latest BIOS upgrade for the AO751h (3211) apparently now: 1) exposes VT-x to VirtualBox; and, 2) the guest OS is now able to boot successfully. I'm quite pleased and VB is one great product!
