Windows 2000 Server 200% CPU load at host side

Postby edvl » 15. Jul 2010, 14:59

Hello,

i have converted a Windows 2000 Server 32 Bit with 2 Cores.
Host has Debian 64 Bit wit a Core i7 930 CPU.
After starting the guest with 2 virtual CPUs, the CPU at hostside is going to 200%. The guest is running with 2 % (Taskmanager).
After changing the HAl to a single CPU, the hostside CPU load is going down to 4 % when guest is idle.
If i change the guest HAL back to multicore, the CPU load at host side is back to 200%.

What can i do?
Other device drivers for windows 2000 server?
Some registry changes?

Thanks
edvl

Not much can be done, except add details of your setup (VirtualBox.xml, machine.xml, VBox.log file) to this bug report :
