I need to use at least 4 VBox sessions simultaneously...

Postby NNYITGuy » 8. Sep 2008, 03:46

Hi everyone,

Just installed v1.6.1 and I really like what I see! I have VPC/2 on the same host. I wnat to convert all my VPC/2 sessions to VBox and then use SMP on a new AMD QuadCore.

My current test show that I can run only 1 VBox client vm. The vm session for the second tells me what is pasted below. I have tried reversing the start order and the same message shows to the corresponding client vm.

VirtualBox - Error
X Failed to start the virtual machine test-xp1 <--My second vm o start...

Failed to load VMMR0.r0.
VBox status code: -2 (VERR_INVALID_PARAMETER).

Result Code:
IConsole {d5a1cbda-f5d7-4824-9afe-d640c94c7dcf}

Is this a limitation of OSE, or am I missing something here???

Want to thank all those who have participated in making this technology a REALITY!

Best regards,
Todd Simpson

You are really going to have to give some more details about your configuration/settings and what you are trying to do.

See the Forum Posting Guide for help framing questions. It also describes what we need to help you.

Did you also try to update VB to a newer version. Also, 1.6.1 is a developers release and is not out for the public to use. Every odd numbered version of VB is not a public release (up to this point, might change some day). Or at least it's referred to as a non-stable release.
