BSOD - after enabling virtualization and VT-d in BIOS

Reported by: strips Owned by:

Host type: Windows

Description

My guest OS was very slow so I tried to enable virtualization and VT-D in BIOS. After booting the guest OS and starting some heavy Java-apps i get a blue screen. This happens every time.

It seems the BSOD happens less frequently if I give the guest less RAM (e.g. 1GB)

I have a colleague who experiences the exact same problem.

Host: Lenovo T410s 3GB RAM Windows XP SP3 32b it

Guest: 4 CPU 1400MB RAM CentOS 6.0 32 bit Running Oracle OSB + Eclipse (requires much RAM)

The attached dump file seems corrupt. Could you re-attach another one here please?

Uploaded the same file zipped. Please let me know if this works or if I have to do a new BSOD.

The dump itself is corrupt, including the zipped one.

Yes, seems like you have uploaded exactly the same corrupted dump. You would need to create another one, i.e. BSOD your system again.

Here is a completely new dump.

Unfortunately the dump is corrupt as well :( Perhaps you could try getting the dump running a VM with less VRAM assigned to it?

I'm using a t410s with an i5-560M, 64-bit Windows 7 and 8GB memory. I'm typing this into a 64-bit Solaris Express guest with 3GB memory & 1 CPU assigned to it. All VT options are enabled in my BIOS and I use various java apps frequently, like the Cisco ASDM for managing an ASA.

I'm not adding this note to be a problem or say 'haha it works for me!', but to offer success on the same platform but with a very different configuration. Using VB 4.1.2.

I set the VRAM to 800MB and threw everyting I could at it. I had maxed CPU and RAM and almost all swap but i did not get any BSOD.

I will try again with a bit more VRAM and report back.

I have a gut feeling this problem is related to there beeing a 1GB and a 3GB SODIMM in the laptop with VT-x enabled. I have had graphics problems with another laptop after enabling VT-x and the same memory config. Then it was a bug in BIOS/chipset.

Hi,

A setting of 1200MB VRAM gives me a BSOD and a corrupt dump file. I tested it with the kd -z command.

If I can get a crash with less RAM I will report back.

I tried 1GB VRAM and no BSOD this time. I doesn't look like I'm able to create a valid dump. There has to be a serious fault with the Windows XP install or laptop.

Try to reproduce the issue with VT-d disabled in BIOS.
Also try with nested paging disabled in VM settings.
