Reported by: andornaut Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows

Description

My guest OS hangs periodically with a harddrive command error followed by an attempt to reset the HD (reproduced with Ubuntu and ArcLinux). This issue does not occur in the host OS (Windows 7), only in the Guest OS.

Environment:

  • Ubuntu running in a Virtual Box 4.0.2 running on Windows 7 64bit.
  • Asus G53JW Laptop
  • Intel X25 SSD HD

This issue is also occurring for me on Fedora 14 and Ubuntu 10.10. I have tried with using SATA, SCSI and SAS and the error still occurs.

Environment: DELL E6410 Windows 7 64bit

Guest OS's Tested: Ubuntu 10.10 i386 Fedora 14 x86_64

This issue does not seem to occur on a Windows XP 32 bit virtual machine.

I've been able to workaround (not to say "solve") this issue by using the following kernel boot option: nolapic_timer

This workaround is described in this bug: #7619

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

Please reopen if still relevant with VBox 4.1.4. From your description this looks like an issue related to the virtual time and there were some fixes in between.

  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Resolution fixed deleted

This issue still happens in 4.1.12 and 4.1.14. Added noapictimer kernel options seems to reduce (but not gone completely) the happen rate.

Several disks got reset when it occurs. I'm using SATA AHCI controller.

Environment:
Host: Windows 7 x64
Guest: Gentoo Linux x64 (linux 3.2.12)
HDD: 6 Seagate 1TB (ST31000524AS and ST31000528AS) whole disk raw access + 1 WD 80GB raw access with some partitions
