Ticket #7267 (closed defect: fixed)
Windows 7 x64 guest causes host Fedora (11 & 13) x86 running 3.2.6 to hang when bridged networking is used
|Reported by:||wallrat||Owned by:|
Since 3.2.6, when I attempt to start my win7 x64 guest it would freeze the host (x86 fedora 13) and force me to cold restart the machine. I couldn't ssh to or even ping the host. I searched around the bug tracker and never found an exact match for this bug, although is seems very similar to Bug #6898. I could boot all other guests (various *nix both nat & bridged) with no issues, but the Win7 x64 guest would freeze the host every time. After switching to NAT (not preferable for me) I can use the guest again and so far no host freezes. I don't have any logs to send as the Vbox logs contain nothing relevant as they are not written to as soon as the host hangs which is practically immediate. I'm running the latest stock fedora 13 PAE kernel 188.8.131.52-147.fc13.i686.PAE and the fedora 13 rpm version of 3.2.6 r63112. If you need any further info or want me to test anything please let me know and I'll be glad to help. I tried hard to find my exact issue in the tracker, but didn't seem to find it. If this is a duplicate I'm sorry and please mark it as such.
