Identified Problems Involving VirtualBox
|Reported by:||oldefoxx||Owned by:|
There are a stream of issues identified with VirtualBox that have hampered every effort to use it as expected. It actually does quite well in many respects, and extends in ways that were not really expected, but the result has been less than needed.
Main problem is that if works fine for initial installs of a client, but is severely hampered when trying to replicate a PC setup from an archive. In terms of peripherals, this is expected. But that the software is so difficult to bring back, and that what is brought back will not boot up, now that was unexpected.
Efforts to restore Windows 2000 Pro have not gone weil, but gains were being made until I reached a point where VirtualBox itself reported a critical problem that warranted a bug report and the log involved to be returned. That is the purpose of this message.
Also included with the log are statements as to what was attempted and how, and what results were obtained during this process.
