#6454 closed defect (duplicate)

WinXP BSODs at startup

Reported by: James Moe Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 3.1.6

Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


VBox v3.1.6 host: opensuse v11.1 linux x86_64 host: opensuse v11.2 linux x86_64 guest: WinXP sp3

Windows XP crashes to a BSOD (blue screen of death) during startup as a guest OS. It happens fairly often. So much so that if I must close Windows, I select "Save Machine State" instead of a normal shutdown. The only time I choose shutdown is when there is no choice (a new program installation, windows updates, etc.).

Sometimes just attempting to start again is enough to get Windows past whatever the problem is and it starts normally. Other times I must boot to Safe Mode, login/logout of an admin account, and restart. That usually works, though not always.

Hmm. I do not know how I managed to submit the same report twice.

Hey! Does this mean you are working on the issue?
