|Component:||guest additions||Version:||VirtualBox 4.1.2|
|Guest type:||Windows||Host type:||Linux|
Description (last modified by )
Guest: Windows XP, SP2. Host: Slackware 13.0 (also reproduced on Windows 7 host) Reproduced with these versions: v3.1.4, v3.1.6
Steps to reproduce: My computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Startup and recovery. Ensure memory dump is on.
Set the following registry entry (assumes PS/2 keyboard):
(Don't forget to reboot) This will allow you to 'blue screen' on demand.
Hold down right ctrl and press 'scroll lock' twice, to get crash dump.
Without additions installed, Windows writes a memory dump as expected.
With additions installed, the guest locks up, consumes 100% cpu and no memory dump appears. Sometimes (but not always) the machine recovers and reboots, but in either case no dump is written.
