VBoxDrv.sys BSoD when suspending/shutting down guest -- mutex lock issue

Reported by: jarz Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.4 Keywords: bsod, vboxdrv
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Whenever I attempt to suspend or shut down a guest, system blue-screens.

WinDbg suggests locks freed in reverse order.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 8 GB RAM

Information from full memory dump Bugcheck Analysis

A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arg1: 0000000000001003, Releasing two locks in reverse order of their acquire.
Arg2: fffff980280ccfc8, First lock address.
Arg3: fffff980281a0fc8, Second lock address.
Arg4: fffffa8008e21090, Verifier internal data.

This happens with Windows and Linux guests, as well as VirtualBox 4.1.2.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually caused by drivers using improper addresses. If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace. Arguments: Arg1: 5b0ed0d8, memory referenced Arg2: d0000002, IRQL Arg3: 00000000, bitfield :

bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)

Arg4: 809aa27d, address which referenced memory

Sorry, but is there any specific reason why you are using VirtualBox 4.0.0? Either upgrade to 4.0.14 or to 4.1.4!

comment:4 Changed 2 years ago by Sniper296

Same issue with Vista host, BackTrack guest with VM 4.1.6 r74713. IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL VBoxDrv.sys.

From 4.1.4 -> 4.1.6 the issue went away on my desktop.

Did a configuration change. Was defragging VDI files with diskeeper, stopped defragging vdi, and problem has temporarily went away.
