I am experiencing the same problem with Fedora 36 host, 6.1.34vbox, and win10 guest. Tried reinstalling win10, getting the same results.

Start the VM from full normal shutdown, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM's OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip it, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

Having the same issue. Host Fedora 36, vbox 6.1.34, trying to install guest Win10 (2H21). Will not complete the install.
Portion of log... deleted; only full logs can help

Just to be sure: Did you install VirtualBox 6.1.34 from Oracle or from Fedora, and if it was the former, was it the Fedora 36 specific variant, which only is available for a few weeks now?

I noticed that this file was a pre-test build, and it probably should be the same as in the current VirtualBox-6.1-6.1.34_150636_fedora36-2.x86_64.rpm file. Just in case, uninstall the former and install the latter (from Download VirtualBox for Linux Hosts.

You either didn't zip the log file or something else went wrong. Please try again. ;)

by the way, I initially installed vbox using VirtualBox-6.1.34-150636-Linux_amd64.run. It worked fine for a couple of weeks, then fedora updated the kernel to 5.17.12-300.fc36.x86_64 and Microsoft updated windows 10 2H21. That installation stopped working about the same time.

The log does not appear to me to show any problems in the Virtualbox 'hardware'. It is possible that something has gone wrong in the VM drive file that has damaged the VM OS beyond recovery.

Try copying the drive file from your backups, to see if an earlier backup of the VM can run. Also, try starting a new VM with a new download of the Windows 10 installer ISO.

I can confirm the kernel update to 5.17.12 seems to be the problem, 5.17.11 is fine. Using fedora 36 host, w7 guest, on amd (desktop) & intel (2xlaptop). Indeed nothing special in the vbox logs, just windows programs on the guest dying within a few sec/min. 5.17.11 -> 12 changelog is mostly a cleanup of random, could that be related?

Re: Windows 10 Guest on Linux host dies seconds after boot

Fedora kernels 5.17.12-300.fc36.x86_64 and 5.17.13-300.fc36.x86_64 are both non-functional with VirtualBox 6.1.34, regardless what the guest is (in my case the guests are all Linux as well).

Booting from 5.17.11-300.fc36.x86_64 makes everything work, including those VMs non-functioning under the later kernels, so the VMs don't sustain damage. Feels like memory corruption to me because running updates in the guest gives a lot of hash failures. Dragging windows on the screen causes the DM to crash a lot also.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Booting from kernel 5.17.11 works like it has for the last 5 years.

Re: Windows 10 Guest on Linux host dies seconds after boot

Hello,

I can confirm this issue on Debian Linux.

Host OS: Debian Linux/SID
Host Kernel: 5.18.0-1
Host VirtualBox: 6.1.34-dfsg-3
Guest OS: Windows 10

Troubleshooting step 1:
- Disable Audio
- Disable Oracle Extention
- Changing memory / CPU settings
no luck so far

Troubleshooting step 2:
- Install Windows 11
- Default values used ( Enable Audio, Oracle Extension)
- No Mem / CPU changes
no luck so far


As Debian SID get's often updates, i went through the old apt logfiles. As other mentioned this could be Kernel related, i checked then the logfiles.

root@debian:/var/log/apt# dpkg -l |grep 'linux-image*' |tail -n 5
rc linux-image-5.17.0-1-amd64 5.17.3-1 amd64 Linux 5.17 for 64-bit PCs (signed)
rc linux-image-5.17.0-2-amd64 5.17.6-1+b1 amd64 Linux 5.17 for 64-bit PCs (signed)
ii linux-image-5.17.0-3-amd64 5.17.11-1 amd64 Linux 5.17 for 64-bit PCs (signed)
ii linux-image-5.18.0-1-amd64 5.18.2-1 amd64 Linux 5.18 for 64-bit PCs (signed)
ii linux-image-amd64 5.18.2-1 amd64 Linux for 64-bit PCs (meta-package)

[2022-06-06] Accepted Linux 5.18.2-1 package was accepted in SID branch 6th of June.
Kernel Release changes: h***s://tracker.debian[.]org/news/1331686/accepted-linux-5182-1-source-into-unstable-unstable
Kernel Release upstream information: h***s://tracker.debian[.]org/pkg/linux

I can't test 5.19.x as it just landed as RC in experimental tree.

Solution - booting into Kernel 5.17.0-X
Guest OS Win10/11 are stable again - Tested with Extension etc.


As this issue occurs in different Distributions ( Debian, Red Hat )...I guess Virtual Box Devs should take a deeper look into the code ?

Greetings,
Henrik
