VirtualBox 4.2 crashes on Restart after Ubuntu install

Postby creatorbri » 30. Oct 2012, 09:06

When I try to install an Ubuntu-based OS in a VirtualBox 4.2.x VM (on a Windows 7 x64 host), VirtualBox always crashes at the end of the install when the machine goes to reboot.

Here's the crash report from Windows (not sure how helpful it will be):

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: VirtualBox.exe
Application Version: 4.2.4.0
Application Timestamp: 508ac1cf
Fault Module Name: MSVCR100.dll
Fault Module Version: 10.0.40219.1
Fault Module Timestamp: 4d5f034a
Exception Code: c0000005
Exception Offset: 000000000003c1b0
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033
Additional Information 1: 9f04
Additional Information 2: 9f046046f0bb306991d764ce2ad02404
Additional Information 3: 6f05
Additional Information 4: 6f05b8f4e0326d934ae2215b29427b1a


Here's my Host system info:
CPU: Intel Core i7-3820QM @ 2.7GHz
RAM: 16.0GB
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
Hardware: Sony Vaio E15112FXS (brand new) - Virtualization enabled in BIOS

The problem occurs with Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 12.10 x64, Xubuntu 12.10 x64, Lubuntu 32-bit, et al. I've configured each VM with a 20+ GB hard drive and 1-2 GB RAM. Oddly enough, the problem did NOT occur with Ubuntu Server 12.04, Pinguy OS, Zorin OS, or Bodhi OS..

Post the VM log file from a crashed session please. The VM log file is called "VBox.log", and can be found in the "Logs" subfolder of your VM folder, and should be posted as a .zip attachment.

@alexDgreat,

You say Ubuntu but the log says CentOS.
Your issue is more than likely a recourse deficiency.
You are assigning more RAM than is actually available. You can see this if you read the top of your log file.

00:00:04.174976 Host RAM: 1917MB total, 1002MB available
00:00:04.888727 Name <string> = "CENTOS" (cb=7)
00:00:04.888744 RamSize <integer> = 0x0000000040000000 (1 073 741 824, 1 024 MB)

sorry I wrote Ubuntu.... I was already working under stress.
It was centos 6.3. I allocated 1024mb of RAM because, a video tutorial I download from youtube shows that to get a graphics user interface during installation, I av to allocate a minimum of 1024mb. but right now I am installing Ubuntu 10.04.4-desktop to see how far I can go.....thanks Perryg

Ok, just to be sure I had a clean log, I created a new VM using the exact same parameters as before. This one happens to be Lubuntu 12.10 (32-bit).

However, I looked at the log before zipping it -- turns out all but the very last line were written during the initial boot, and while the last line definitely was written AFTER I clicked the "Restart" button, it doesn't look to terribly helpful. Hopefully you experts can get something more from it...

Edit: To clarify, it DID crash again, as I expected.

@creatorbri,

Could you also post the following:
From the hosts terminal/command window type VBoxManage showvminfo <VM Name> --details and post here. Replace <VM Name> with the actual name of the VM. Use " " if the name has a space in it.

Note if the host is Windows you need to be in the directory that has VBoxManage.exe for the command to work.

I have been working on an issue with the new Unity DT and their software rendering 3D acceleration. It might also effect your shut-down but not really sure yet. If so there will be a fix in the maintenance release.

I also see that you are using a vmdk format for you guest. Is this a transplant or can you tell me why it is not VDI?

Hi I had a similar problem with Windows 8 Pro as host. It was happening for both Ubuntu and Fedora installations.

Here's what I did and solved my problem. I was using the .iso files as virtual drive to install the guest OSes.

I force unmounted the virtual drive (I was using .iso file as a virtual drive for the installations) just before pressing the reboot button. VirtualBox did not crash this time. However, I had to send a manual "Power off" and restart the VM again. It worked!

Maybe in case it helps you guys!

I had the same issue installing on Windows 7 - 64 bit. As the installations starts we are prompted (a checkbox) to choose to check for updates. I had this enabled when it crashed. The next time I did not check this & tried, it went thro'.

I had the same problem. Not sure how to unmount virtual drive. I had this iso file in my windows 7 64 bit downloads directory .
also what is meant by manual "power off" mean ?. it is rebooting the windows 7 machine ?. I did cleanly shut off virtual box and windows 7, with no help.

Yesterday, I installed ubuntu 12.10 desktop from virtual box 4.2.6 . Initially it got installed well, but I suspected some issue, so I decided to install again. I chose the option of ‘delete and install’ but it says it stalled well and asks me to restart it, when I restart and it crashes VM box . when I start it says abort. If I start ubuntu 12.10, it installs over and over with the same issue. I heard hard reset, but not sure what it really mean
I tried to uninstall ubuntu, but couldn’t make it how to do. With a hope to do clean run, I uninstalled Virtual Box and reinstalled and reran ubuntu installation, the problem is same. I am attaching the vbox.log , hopefull it will help in debugging.
I installed virtual box on windows 7 OS with AMD e-450 CPU , with bios 52CN15WW. Here is the log of the latest install log. Appreciate any input.

I also have this issue with every VirtualBox 4.2 release.

This issue has been reported multiple times with multiple Linux distributions:

I can reproduce it on a Windows 8 Pro x64 host with every Linux guest I tried (Ubuntu, Fedora etc.).

Steps to reproduce the issue:
  • Boot the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit live image.
  • Install the OS (files copy).
  • It asks to restart the system.
  • Try to restart the system -> VirtualBox 4.2 crashes when the live image is mounted in VirtualBox. If you force the image ejection before trying to restart, then VirtualBox doesn't crash.

Such reproductible issues should be added to The BugTracker. Make sure another ticket does not exist for this issue already.
If you create a new ticket, provide detailed and accurate step by step with versions and filenames, aswell as the VM log file and the guest config.
