VirtualBox Reports Crash When Trying to Load Recovery Console (Windows 2000 Pro)

Description

At one point, I was able to run Windows 2000 Pro Recovery Console as an option under VirtualBox and as a boot option. But now VirtualBox crashes as Recovery Console boots up, and requests that i forward the log and image taken. So that is what I am doing.

There are several problems with the bug reporting process. It really only seems to support the attachment of one file, not multiple files. And with four log files present, I am not sure which to include, so I add them all. but to do that, I create an office document to contain them. And where you attach one file, your only option is Submit, and if you need to include more files, you are not ready to submit. So it is confusing. To make matters worse, the folder .VirtualBox is hidden, meaning that the folders like Machines are also hidden, and the log files are hidden. There is no option for including hidden files with Attachment. You probably discourage quite a few submitters who would otherwise tell you of other problems encountered.

I haven't heard that complaint before. You can attach files one at a time. .VirtualBox is not hidden here.

To be more specific:

  1. The ~/.VirtualBox folder is not hidden, every Linux application can read files from this folder. The files there will not be shown when you do ls -l but that doesn't matter.
  2. To access the log files in a more user-friendly way you can use the VM selector window (Machine / Show Log...).
  3. You can attach log files one by one. For attaching 4 log files you just have to press the Attach File button 4 times. I don't think this is too difficult to understand.
  4. Please do not create an office document containing the log files, just attach them as raw files.
