VirtualBox freezes at initial boot with iso with error: KBD: unsupported int 16h function 03

Description

I seem not to be able to start a new VM on Windows 7 because each time I try to start a new VM for the first time with an iso in the IDE Primary Master (CD/DVD), it freezes with just an underscore in the window.

The same error, i.e. error Guest Log: BIOS: KBD: unsupported int 16h function 03 happens also when you try to boot up with the Debian Lenny in an IDE DVD drive and you select Graphical install. If you select option Install at boot, the error shown is IO APIC resource could not be allocated.

In VBox 3.2.12 installing guests from isos works. Disregard the part about "If you select option Install at boot, the error shown is IO APIC resource could not be allocated". That error is also shown in VBox 3.2.12, but doesn't stop Debian Lenny from installing itself.

Still relevant with VBox 4.0.6?

I have this problem on Windows 7 i7-2670QM. I did not have it on my core2duo running the same settings with the same ISO.

I tested this against Version 4.1.8 r75467 and 4.1.12 r77245 -- same results.

The guest is a custom build of linux, which works on my old computer with the same versions of virtualbox I tried on my new i7.

00:00:31.445 PIT: mode=0 count=0x10000 (65536) - 18.20 Hz (ch=0)

And it simply freezes there and never continues....

What does freeze mean: How far did your Linux guest boot? Can you still terminate the VM or do you have to kill the VM process?

comment:7 Changed 2 years ago by msumme

It stops indefinitely. I can terminate the VM, but it never progresses beyond that point.

I am wondering if it relates to hyperthreading on the new computer? Or maybe Nvidia drivers?

But the VM has no GUI, so I don't think it's a video card issue....

any ideas?

Somehow, the first few times I tried running the VM with the VT-x and nested paging available, it didn't load...

But now it does. the only necessary thing was to change the settings to use VT-x and Nested Paging.

I'm still stumped why I had problems originally, but after cycling through all the configurations again, it works. May have been user error...
