Your description is not entirely clear. It sounds like you started your guest and after you selected the iso image for the guest, the host hangs or crashes so you must reboot the host. Is that correct?

What do you mean by tried VBox 3.1.8 but nothing? Same problem with VBox 3.1.8 or not?

I'm sorry, for first question it's exactly as you explained (sorry for bad english); for second question: for solve the problem i've tried older versions of VBox and older version of kernel, but the system crashed again.

Are you able to start any guest or does your host always crash? If you can boot any other guest, could you attach a corresponding VBox.log file of such a VM session -- this will tell us the configuration of your machine. And please attach the .xml file of your Windows XP guest so we can check the VM configuration.

If your host has VT-x or AMD-V, please try if disabling this feature in the VM settings makes your guest boot.

Is your host a standard Ubuntu 10.04 or did you install some special drivers? Some special graphics drivers (nVidia, ATI)?

My host alway crash, with any guest. i've installed ATI's special drivers and architecture is Intel. I've just installed 10.04 64-bit on host and now i try with it.

Hmm, in that case I would suggest you to look at your BIOS settings. And perhaps upgrade the BIOS to a newer version. What host processor do you have (exact name as possible)?

Intel Core Duo E8400

That processor indeed support VT-x

You can't from Ubuntu. You have to go to the website of your PC/laptop vendor and search for a BIOS update. Some vendors provide an .iso image which you can burn on a CDROM and then boot.

When you start the VBox GUI, are you able to change set VT-x/AMD-V setting of a VM? Or is the corresponding checkbox disabled?
