Windows 7 and SMP

Postby Perryg » 19. Jul 2011, 02:54

Working with Windows 7 x86_64 and have been having a lot of issues with Windows just rebooting. I have tracked it down to using more than 1 processor on my system. If I run a single processor everything works as it should including WDDM and AERO, but if I try to enable the 2nd processor for SMP everything works until you start to do anything with it.

I am including log files of the single and duo below

Please try the 4.1 final release. There was an important fix after 4.1 Beta 3 which could be related to your observed problem.

Sorry it does not seem to work for me. Linux guests work fine as well as Solaris and Win XP, but Win-7 and *shudder* Vista crash if trying to do anything worth doing. Building to SVN r38040 and using the 4.1.0 GA and ExtPack produces the exact same issue.

Note 1: You want me to move this out of beta now that beta testing is really finished?
Note 2: Come to think about it this has been going on for some time and IIRC it all started around version 4.* and getting progressively worse to where it really does no good to run with SMP. Turning off 3D/2D allows it to run a lot longer. Maybe 20 minutes but enabling 3D/2D you get a crash within the first minute while doing nothing. Machine simply reboots and windows brings up the how do you want to boot the machine normal, safe, ...
