Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) Component: Con

Postby tschiff » 8. Oct 2009, 22:01

Sorry to be so bone Headed...
I had Virtual Box 3.0.4 working on this server. I had an error after loading several packages I noticed that my USERGROUPS had issues. I reinstalled Ubuntu 9.04 and all the suggested packages. I then installed the newer version of Vitual Box 3.0.8. This is on a Sun w2100z (2) CPU, 16Gb RAM server.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My errors are as follows when I try to boot from the Windows DVD:

I assume you have done the usual , login in the vboxusers group, rebooting, etc.
If nothing else this usually means a failed install. Not sure why it is addressing the CD/DVD, but you can try to reinstall and see if this helps.

I have tried three different attempts to load Virtual Box. I even reloaded Ubuntu 9.04 with the standard Synaptic packages and then loading 3.0.4- no help.
I then used the synaptic updater to go to version 3.0.8 and this didn't fix anything either.

What would be the best way to remove all the Virtual box packages and then start from scratch?

I'm still trying other things. Thanks for the reply!

You can try to set the DVD to passthrough and see if that helps and also test the DVD on a different machine and make sure that is has not been damaged.
You can also convert the DVD to an ISO and see if you can install from that.

I have it set as passthrough and w/o passthrough. I have gotten a new sata drive and loaded it with Ubuntu 9.04 and w/ and w/o the extra packages (Java, VPNC, etc.) No help. I still get the same message. I have attached the log file to see if this would help to discover the issue. I appreciate your efforts and am willing to help in anyway in getting this remedied. :-D

This is talking about hardware-v and the fact that VBox can not see it. Make sure that you have it turned on in the bios.

I have upgraded my BIOS to the latest version (R01-B5 S1). There isn't a switch setting for the virtaulization on the processors. I even went as far as putting all the BIOS settings back to the factory settings. Re-loaded the O/S (Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty) and all the necessary patches, and the same issue occurs. :( . If I didn't have this working on this system before, I wouldn't be so fretful over not being able to install this.

Thank you for your attention on my situation.

This is a shot in the dark but try editing the machines xml file and switch the HardwareVirtEx to false and see if it will boot See example below:

<Hardware>
<CPU count="1">
<HardwareVirtEx enabled="false"/>
<PAE enabled="true"/>
</CPU>

I'll be glad to try. Where is this file located? I'm not that savvy about Ubuntu.

Sorry for the ignorance!

Usually in your home folder then /.VirtualBox/Machines/<machine Name>/<machine name>.xml
depending on how you access this you must enable show hidden files if you are using a file manager.

Thank you for helping. I had found it by going to "File" on the Virtual Box window and then selecting the "Preferences" and looking at the machine file in that directory on the server.

I made the changes and tried it. It didn't work. I then rebooted the server and tried again. This time it worked !!!

You are the man!! :D :D


This can be closed, for I am able to load the CD of Windows XP and it is building as we speak!
