We have been using Microsoft's Internet Explorer Application Compatibility VPC Images to test and develop for Internet Explorer 6 compatibility (found in http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/de ... x?id=11575
). As we use Linux and Mac workstations, we have been using VirtualBox with the VPC images, and they have worked perfectly (http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/vi ... 1-mm34.iso
is a very nice ISO which provides very convenient drivers for the paravirtualized network card provided by VirtualBox).
However, as of the new images of 8/16/11, the virtual drive "Windows XP.vhd" extracted from Windows_XP_IE6.exe does no longer work. Shortly after booting, the screen turns black and the host CPU spins with 100% usage.
We have tried enabling/disabling VM options, to no avail. We have also updated to VirtualBox 4.1.2 r73507.
Has anyone found a fix/workaround?
