Reverting to 4.06 solves the problem.

Could you attach a VBox.log file for such a VM session?

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by frank

FYI, we did several tests and so far were not able to reproduce your problem.

  • priority changed from blocker to major

Oh, are you running Lion by any chance?

Yes this is Lion build 11A459e

  • Summary changed from 4.08 VM won't start if VT-x enabled (OSX) to VM won't start if VT-x enabled (OSX Lion)

In that case this is expected as Lion is not yet supported.

Disabling VT-x will cause DP4 (Update 1) to completely lock up.

VT-x with Lion should work fine with VBox 4.0.10 which was just released.

comment:10 Changed 10 years ago by Xaositek

Perfect! Works marvelously!

comment:11 Changed 10 years ago by frank

Thanks for the feedback! Note that there are still issues for the non-VT-x mode but on OSX you should never need to run a VM without VT-x.

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

Should be fixed in 4.0.12 and 4.1.0.
