Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Running VirtualBox 4.0.10 on Debian Lenny 64-bit host installed on Dell R310. Successfully created a Windows 2008 64-bit guest VM, however Windows cannot install. The VRDP session terminates 30 sec after Windows install starts. I tried to replicate the problem on Supermicro hardware, but I was able to successfully install Windows there. I also exported the VM from Supermicro and imported it on the Dell R310 and had the same problem - VRDP terminates 30 sec after Windows start. Below is the script used to create the guest VM and also the log files are attached.

So your VM crashes, correct? In that case, a Core_dump would help us debugging.

We found the process that was killing the VM and solved the issue. Thank you for the information how to collect core_dump, was really helpful!
