Guru meditation error on Win XP guest OS

Postby cristi385 » 24. Mar 2018, 16:10

Hello,

I get a Guru meditation error and the application fails to start. Guest OS Windows XP SP3 Pro, Host OS Windows 10 Pro version 1709. I am using version 5.2.8. I press OK on the error message I run the application again, choose "Last known good configuration" and after that Windows XP works fine. This is the trouble, XP never starts from the first time. This is happening since I upgraded the application to version 5.2.6.

In future please trim screenshots before posting them, and we only need one (relevant) log file. I discarded the unwanted attachments from your post.

The log shows that you have VT-x/AMD-v enabled in the VM settings. Your host doesn't support VT-x, so this needs to be disabled. Unfortunately the VirtualBox Manager won't let you change a setting for a feature it thinks doesn't exist, so you need to use the command line.

With all VirtualBox software closed, open a command console, navigate to the "c:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox" folder, and type:-
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage modifyvm "XP" --hwvirtex off

... and lets see where that gets us.

Sorry for the uploading mistakes.
Unfortunately running that command had no effect. It only blinked a blank cmd line window.

The command has an effect if you followed the instructions carefully. Does the VM settings still show the VT-x/AMD-v checkbox ticked and grayed? Or is it unticked and grayed?

I followed the instruction carefully! :evil:
I don't see at all, anywhere, a VT-x/AMD-v checkbox. Not on the adanced tab in settings and not even mentioned on the main window.
