0xc000001d "an instruction not supported by the CPU was executed in module dither"

Postby FranceBB » 16. Aug 2017, 01:00

With the latest beta, Fedora 26 host (Intel i7 6700HQ) and Windows XP Professional x86 guest,
if the CPU used by the host supports instructions that are not supported by the guest OS (like AVX, AVX2, FMA3, FMA4, AVX-512),
these assembly optimisations are shown as available, therefore once a program starts, it detects AVX as available, so it tries to use the AVX registers,
but the guest OS (Windows XP) supports up to SSE4.2 and such a program crashes with 0xc000001d code.
This issue doesn't occur in VirtualBox 5.1.26 (latest stable).

Sorry, we can't make any sense of what you're complaining about. If you have software that tries to use AVX when it wasn't enabled by the OS (in this case, guest OS) then yes, it will crash. But why is that a surprise? And what does that have to do with virtualization?

Please provide VBox.log files from 5.1.26 and 5.2 beta running the same VM and guest software. We are not aware of intentional differences in behavior between 5.1.26 and 5.2 in this regard.
