This was my first idea... I don't want to be too rude, but I'm an IT professional and I usually know what I'm doing.Sasquatch wrote:but as with any previous version, it can barf at you when you present it with different hardware after it's installed. Get a clean install if you want to use ICH9.
I guess I described it not clear enough. I installed VB 4.0.0 Beta 4 and two new guests - Windows 7 x86 and Windows XP x86, both with ICH9. It was a clean install and everything worked fine with the guest additions of Beta 4.nike wrote:Did you installed guest with ICH9 chipset or just changed chipset type after installation?

BuG wrote:So again, simple and clear: Nothing works with ICH9 if I install the final guest additions. If I choose the Beta 4 ones, everything works fine.

Sasquatch wrote:I'll investigate after I've slept and have some spare time to install XP or W7 in a new VM. So far, all my VMs are happy with the 4.0 final GA, but are still running without ICH9 (don't plan to change that anytime soon either).
nike wrote:"squall leonhart", please make only statements where you're really understand what you're talking about, otherwise level of this discussion gets too low to be useful. Windows BSODs when changing chipset types, if I understand reason correctly, due to the fact that boot device PCI path is somehow stored by boot
manager (this is definitively true for EFI boot manager). IDE controller is in different position in PIIX (0:01:1) and ICH9 (0:1f:1 IIRC).
We appreciate user-to-user technical support, but only in case where provided info correlates with reality, otherwise you just increasing universe entropy.
Regarding final GA issues, I'll recheck, but is anyone else able to reproduce this issue?
