SATA AHCI broken in windows XP in 4.0.6
|Reported by:||cschmidt||Owned by:|
After upgrading from VirtualBox 4.0.4 to 4.0.6 a Windows XP VM is unable to access a secondary drive (pops up the error message "S:\ is not accessible The Semaphore timeout period has expired"). The SATA driver used is Intel 82801HEM/HBM version 22.214.171.1240 from 126.96.36.1997.
A second disk seems to be affected worse than the primary, since I didn't encounter the Semaphore timeouts on C:, just on the second drive. However, accessing the c: drive also has latencies of minutes when e.g. starting a cmd window.
