    Windows 7 Guest crashes to blue screen on startup

    host: ubuntu 12.10, 64-bit
    Guest: Windows 7, 64-bit
    platform: Virtualbox.

    I copied a working virtual machine from windows to Linux, but it never started. it crashes to blue screen after the windows logo.

    do you know any known issues that can cause that ?


    i7 3612qm with VT-x enabled.

    Thanks

    I think BSOD is something quite common

    I do know I never bother with _64 in VM's but it should work... obviously

    Have you got The Extension Pack installed?
