2011 iMac System Crash

Reported by: st47 Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.0.8
Keywords: crash, mac, freeze Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


When installing or running a guest operating system, in my case, Windows Vista 32 Bit and Fedora 14, the host computer, running 10.6.7 Mac OSX, crashes requiring a complete restart of the system. The guest operating system settings are as follows:

2048 MB RAM 128 MB Video RAM No 2D/3D Acceleration No IO APIC (Has same effect with it on) 1 Processor, No PAE/NX No VT-x/AMD-v 60 GB Hard drive Using Windows Vista 32 Bit DVD as operating system at the moment as installation has not yet completed.

Is there any crash report or does the host completely freeze?

comment:2 Changed 8 years ago by st47

These is no crash report that I have been able to identify. The last time it froze, the words PANIC on a black background appeared in the upper left-hand corner.

There were additional OSX host fixes in VBox 4.0.10 so it might be worth a try to upgrade. Oh, and please make sure that you enable VT-x for your VMs!
