Question XP Install in VirtualBox Stalls Repeatedly - 10-17-2009, 05:21 PM

Mini 9, 64GB Runcore, 2GB, Leopard, Virtualbox 3.0.8, external LiteOn DVD-RW w/independent power supply -

Trying to install Win XP in VM - after the "vt-x" hack (thanks a lot, joyork!!!), it started the install and proceeded normally until loading devices after reboot (when it says "35 minutes to go") - then it hangs.

Have waited a long time to see whether it would come back to life, have reset the VM and done it again, have deleted the VM and made a new one and started over; but every time I come to that point, it hangs. Good disc, used it to previously run XP on this same Mini. Also tried the install with an nLited version of this same disc with identical result.

Virtualbox seems fine, the computer runs like a fine watch otherwise.

Any thoughts?
