Windows 2000 guest crashes from saved state on Mojave

Postby donscreen » 10. Mar 2019, 18:20

I am running Virtualbox 6.0.4 on my late 2013 Macbook Pro with Mojave 10.14.4. Guest Additions 6.0.0 RC1

My guest VM is Windows 2000 Professional. Virtualbox runs fine and I can start the Windows 2000 guest VM and save the machine state.
When I try to start the saved VM it crashes. Attached is the Vbox.log. Any insight you can give me on the cause would be greatly appreciated.
I have tried older version of the guest additions with the same or worse results.

After more troubleshooting it looks like the crash is related to resizing the guest Windows 2000 display with Guest Additions and using Command-C switch to scale mode.
If I don't resize the guest display on startup of the saved machine state there is no crash. I would like it to automatically go back to the 1024x768 and 256 color display without crashing the VM.

I don't know what you did you your "vbox.txt", but please don't do it again; the alignment is completely screwed up and it makes reading it unbelievably hard! Here is my standard instructions for future reference. Note that you don't touch or edit the file at any point:
We need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.

So, could you follow the instructions, edit your first message and replace it with a ZIPPED VBox.log?

Also, take a look at the Known Issues in the "Discuss the 6.0.0 release" post. You seem to be affected by one or more of the following:
  • #18212 Windows 10 Host - Hardening error - VMs do not start
  • #18263 Restoring 32bit Windows7 VM Saved State Fails
  • #18265 Win7 in VB 6.0.0 fails on resume on 97%
  • #18331 Restoring 32bit Windows XP VM Saved State Fails
Finally, can you try with the latest test builds? Remember to update the Extension Pack and the Guest Additions as well.

Or maybe it's a completely irrelevant to the issued tickets, and maybe it's a simple case of not having your GAs up-to-date:

Update the GAs and see if that changes the situation...

I saved the vbox log and zipped it with my Mac's compress function and posted to my original message. Hopefully this one is readable. Thanks.
I also updated my Guest additions to 6.0.4 to match my VB 6.0.4. This did not fix my issue with trying to start my saved Windows 2000 VM.

Yes, thank you, much better! You did change the name of the log, but that splitting hairs compared to its previous state. ;)

But, still my recommentations don't change. Start with:
  • update the Guest Additions (GAs), and if the saved-state-crash continues,
    • try the latest 6.0.x test build, and if the saved-state-crash continues,
      • don't use saved states until this is resolved.

With Guest Additions removed completely.....I don't get any crashes from the saved state. However, I need Guest Additions installed to change the guest OS display to 1024x768. So something in Guest Additions is causing the crash from the saved state.

Yes, the GAs are the main responsible for this (AFAIK). Please keep watching the logs and the upgrade release information.

I found this solution! It installs a video driver that allows higher screen resolutions in the VM guest Window 2000 WITHOUT using Guest Additions....therefore no more crashing from the saved state restore!
You do have to use the home key to exit the mouse capture mode.

This is a workaround at its best. Please do not use this solution long-term!
