Windows Server Updates ends in Guru Meditation

Postby Slimm » 16. Aug 2019, 16:39


I have the following error. Everytime I update both of my Windows Server 2016 vms I get a "Guru Meditation" while the VM tries to do a automatic reboot.
After a reboot of the host everything works fine and I can start my servers without problems.
My host-system is a Debian Stretch (4.9.168-1+deb9u5 (2019-08-11) x86_64 GNU/Linux) with VirtualBox 6.0.4.
Rebooting the vms without Windows Updates everything works fine...

Re: Windows Server Updates ends in Guru Meditation

I'm having a similar problem. 75% of the time when I do a restart from within the Windows 10 64-bit Pro VM, I get the same Guru Meditation crash.

I think my issue could be RAM related. I originally allocated 4096+128 (RAM+VRAM) to the VM, on an 8GB Windows 10 Host. I'm going to upgrade my ram to 16GB which should hopefully give me more breathing room.

My understanding is that VERR_PGM_HANDER_NOT_FOUND is because of the "PaGed Memory manager", so it indicates some issue with RAM I suppose.
