Crash on Linx host while installing FreeDOS guest

Description

I was trying to install FreeDOS in a VirtualBox VM when VirtualBox crashed. It requested me to report it here, so here I am.

I had created a VM with "Windows 3.1" selected as guest operating system, as I intended to install Windows 3.11 later, 32 MB of RAM and a 1 GB virtual harddisk. I then downloaded the fdfullcd.iso for FreeDOS 1.0 from  http://www.freedos.org/freedos/files/, booted from it and started the installation (keeping the default settings, which amounts to installing pretty much everything).

The files were copied successfully, but then during the configuration phase, two or three programs after the configuration of Pegasus Mail, this crash occurred. I don't know which program it was configuring at that time. It seems probable that the problem wasn't with FreeDOS itself, but with one of the additional packages.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Sorry but VBox 3.1.8 is quite old and there were a lot of bugfixes in between. Please reopen if still relevant with VBox 3.2.10. In that case, please attach a VBox.log file again.
