Windows guests hang

2009/08/17

Haven’t start my Windows guests for a while and recently upgrade VirtualBox to 3.0.4 and found that two of them still works but the other two just hang during boot at welcome screen.

Boot them in safe mode hang after mup.sys loaded. Google around and found solution to ‘disable interppm’ after boot the CD or recovery console. However, they seems can’t help.

Finally figured out that the two guests have 3 HDDs while the other two only have 2 HDDs. After few try by errors. My workaround is to set the HDD to use SATA0, SATA2, SATA3. Not using SATA1 seems resolve the problem for me.
