attempting to run a 64 bits guest reboot the linux host (AMD)

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I am running Archlinux 32 bits, up to date as of 2011-11-10. with a 3.1 kernel on an inspiron 531 with an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+ AuthenticAMD
For the record, I am able to run Ubuntu 11.10 64 bits on this box natively
The issue/bug: When I attempt to run any (either windows 7 64 bits or ubuntu 11.10 64 bits, and I think I could enlarge the list to whatever you like) with virtualbox 4.1.6, it blacken the screen and reboot the box/pc!
I was expecting this to be fixed other time but I see no improvement. This is not a new bug. It happens since at least vbox 4, kernel 2.6.39
I think it has to do with the linux kernel but I can't be sure.
Scenario: Attempting to install Windows 7 64 bits by booting the iso/dvd
With PAE/NX enabled with IO-APIC activated, it freezes after displaying "Starting Windows"
With PAE/NX enabled without IO-APIC activated, it rebooted right after "Starting Windows" is displayed after the "Windows is loading files" screen
If I enable PAE/NX with IO-APIC, it reboots as soon as "Starting Windows" is displayed
One get a similar experience attemting to install ubuntu 11.10 64 bits from vbox (not sure about the config of the VM)
Also booting ubuntu 11.10 64 bits from a real partition with vbox in archlinux 32 bits, gives a reboot as soon as the boot process begins (after grub screen)
Also booting Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits from a real partition with vbox in archlinux 32 bits) gives also a reboot
I have gave up trying to use anything 64 bits with vbox because of that reboot.
I got no problem running Ubuntu 11.10 64 bits (from a real partition) from Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bits with virtualbox.
