Well, USB Stick/Flash drives still work.

Auto-Mount is not "normal" usage for mine, thereby obscuring the problem.
Down-grade or Not ???? <sigh>

No, you are not in the right section and how to install VirtualBox is covered in the user manual.

At least include some info such as what computer you are using, have you tried installing it, did you have a problem installing it, etc..

Hi there,

4.3.22 is another disaster for me. Apologize for creating an useless topic (see here) but this time, I can't start any VM and I'm getting this message : Image

Thanks for the help and for getting VBox back to the stability :)

- My shared folder is setup as: read-only, not auto-mount, permanent.
- In the guest, you could go to Explorer, Network, and browse to \\VBoxSvr\SharedFolder.
- This fails with GAs 4.3.22 (\\VBoxSrv is empty), it works fine if you downgrade to 4.3.20 (even in place).
- Guests that it fails: 2000, XP, 7, 8.1, 10 (b9841 and b9926), pretty much every Win guest.


I confirm - have the same problem, only downgrade fix the issue

I had a similar problem with adding Transient network folders to the Virtual Box 4.3.22, as discussed above. After a downgrade to 4.3.20 and the execution of the corresponding Guest Additions, I again had access to the Transient folder in the \\VBOXSVR\ network folder of my virtualized Windows 7, 32 bit. My host system ist Kubuntu 14.04.

Could all those having problems with GA features (such as shared folders), please make clear whether the problem is only with the latest GAs, or does it happen even with older versions of the GAs on 4.3.22 host software?

Rolling back to the 4.3.20 GAs fixed shared folders for me while keeping the 4.3.22 host software. Shared folders never actually "broke". They just say "Disconnected Network Drive" and \\vboxsvr is empty. But the files in the shared folder are still there and accessible on the E: drive (on mine).

Hi there,

Anyone's got problems with PXE-booting VM's? After the upgrade to 4.3.22 from 4.3.20 my VM's fail to PXE boot.
I've got an HP Eliteboot 8560p with an Intel 82579 LM Gbit adapter running on Windows 8.1. Returning to 4.3.20 re-enables the functionality.

Tried different kinds of guest configs, e.g. Windows 2012 64-bit/Linux Ubuntu 64 bit/Linux RedHat 64 bit/Linux Redhat 32 bit, but it does not seem to make any difference.

Regards,
Biite

What to do since I really need to have access to this virtual machine? Thanks.

@SamH: your host only has 2 CPU cores, so assigning 2 cores to the VM is probably not the best idea you've had. Threads are not cores - if they were then nobody would be paying a premium for cores.

@Marebul: You would probably be better off posting in the "Errors related to security" discussion in the "Windows Hosts" forum - and nothing much will happen anyway unless you provide the VBoxStartup.log file as the error message indicates.

Guess we are stuck forever with 4.3.14!


Also affects CentOS 7 host.


Note: if I use 4.3.14 host, and if the W7 guest has 4.3.20 Guest Additions I don't see the glitches.
So it is most likely a regression in the host code after the 4.3.14 release.
