System HDD on AHCI SATA disappears on Windows XP guest without BSOD when changing virtio driver

Reported by: arcivanov Owned by:
Priority: major Component: virtual disk
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.2 Keywords: sata hdd disappear virtio driver windows guest linux
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Mac OS X

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Host:

Fedora 15 x86_64

Linux aivanov-pc.us.oracle.com 2.6.40.4-5.fc15.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Aug 30 14:38:32 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Guest: Windows XP 32bit SP3, latest updates

Guest configuration:

Chipset: ICH9 Primary Disk: SATA AHCI 1 Port, *no* host I/O cache, *raw* disk. Network: paravirt

How to reproduce:

1) Download latest KVM virtio driver ( http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/virtio-win/latest/images/bin/virtio-win-0.1-15.iso) 2) Mount ISO to DVD-ROM for Windows Guest 3) Update Ethernet adapter driver

Effect:

Primary guest disk disappears from the list of devices entirely. Windows does *NOT* BSOD, starts reporting failed delayed writes and slowly becomes completely unusable with every process eventually requiring disk access failing. Guest cannot shutdown by itself and has to be powered off.

This is reproducible every time.

Please make a correction - host type should be "Linux".

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by arcivanov

Same bug persists in 4.1.4.

Is it reproducible if you switch the chipset from ICH9 to PIIX3?

comment:4 Changed 2 years ago by Squall Leonhart

reproducible on windows 7 with a windows XP guest, ICH9 and PIIX3 both affected.

Reproduction is as simple as opening device manager and selecting the action "Scan for hardware changes"

in some instances the VM just guest process just automatically closes

Please disable page fusion -- still reproducible?

comment:6 Changed 2 years ago by Squall Leonhart

if you can point out where such a setting is, i will disable it.

comment:7 Changed 2 years ago by Squall Leonhart

ah, nope. didn't help.

comment:8 Changed 2 years ago by frank

Could you attach a VBox.log file of the VM with page fusion disabled?

comment:9 Changed 2 years ago by Squall Leonhart

Frank, this appears to be the same problem as https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/6675

i think we should merge these and follow up with the older of the two?
