Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Running VBox 3.2.10 r66523 on Ubuntu Maverick 64-bit (10.10) *). Host is Intel Core 2 Duo T9900 @3.06GHz. 8 GB host memory. Guest is Windows XP (32-bit), slipstreamed (with MS ServicePack) up to SP3.

*) I observe same symptoms when running VBox on Win7 64-bit.

I've had troubles installing XP Guest with SATA support without getting BSOD.

The main problem for me was to A) find which SATA I could use B) what version of the driver and C) what product to select during installation.

So after reading on the web I found A) Intel AHCI a.k.a Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver and C) use the ICH8M-E/M driver.

However, VBox seems picky about which version of the SATA driver you pick. Hence:

iaStor.sys version:

  • 7.8.0.1012 Works
  • 8.8.0.1009 BSOD during installation
  • 8.9.0.1023 BSOD during installation
  • 9.6.0.1014 BSOD during installation

When installing all versions accepts the driver during the F6 phase and XP is capable of discovering the harddrive. However, the installation dies with BSOD when it is 32 minutes or so remaining. The BSOD has no message (no IRQL_xxx or similar), and the STOP is 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, ...)

I have not experimented with using other variants like ICH9 or ICH10 SATA drivers.

IMHO a notice should be available somewhere in docs/website to indicate which iaStor driver and version to use for XP Guest.
