|Reported by:||tthsn||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 3.1.8||Keywords:||failed to start saved guest|
Host Machine: Windows 7 Ultimate AMD64
Reason: The Network Interface name is changed after Display Language changed. (NIC_name_changed.png) Affects: Then the guest OS which has a network bridged to it will suffer to recognize the original interface. Sugguestion: Why not use device unique id or something else to recognized the network interface, other than its name.
Steps to reproduce the bug: 1) Initially Windows has English Display 2) Start a guest OS and saved it 3) Change "Display Language" in control panel to Simplified Chinese, restart host, and login 4) Start the guest OS saved in step 2) 5) Failed to start the guest (failed_to_start_guest.png)
