Storage -> Add Hard Disk, SATA controller, crashes VirtualBox

Postby arQon » 21. Apr 2019, 22:41

"Storage -> Add Hard Disk" on the SATA connector of a newly-created VM crashes the Vbox GUI. W7x64 Host.
Will try on the IDE connector, but wanted to post this now in case the crash takes down this VM too.
Good: at least it didn't do that. But the GUI crashes there as well.

The "Create New Disk / Use Existing Disk / Cancel" dialog pops up, but then the whole UI dies. I've removed and reinstalled 6.0.6, no change.

Faulting application name: VirtualBox.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5cb5a600
Faulting module name: Qt5GuiVBox.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x58e261e1
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0000000000241bf4
Faulting process id: 0xb8c
Faulting application start time: 0x01d4f88248766a26
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VirtualBox.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\Qt5GuiVBox.dll

This is also happening with 6.0.4 after downgrading to that, so: mods, can you split this out of the 606 thread into a new one please? Thanks.


yay, found a workaround! :)
If you delete the CONTROLLER and create a new one, you can then add drives to it without it crashing.

Note that this happened with a BRAND NEW VM, so if the problem is with the XML in the config file or somesuch then it should hopefully be easy to find, since it's the first-time generation that's causing it.
