Specifically this crash seems to happen when I have two Linux guests that are performing heavy I/O to one SATA hard drive.

Virtualbox is running on a Windows 7 Quadcore with 8 GB of memory.

Can you reproduce this crash? If so, please attach a VBox.log file of the VM session after it crashed.

I think this ticket should be closed. I recently discovered that the physical machine used to run VBox had a BIOS setting of CPU Spread Spectrum = yes. Since I am unsure of the relevance of this setting and its possible negative impact I would rather close this ticket at this time rather than pursue this as a VBox issue.

Thanks. You might also might want to try a newer VBox release.
