I've searched a lot to resolve the following issue, but nothing helped me.
My problem is, that starting up a first-gen vm locks up the whole host. Only a hard reset helps. Second-gen vm starts and runs perfectly. The freezes happened on 3 different vms. FreeBSD, Ubuntu, Windows Server 2008R2, while Windows 8.1 on second gen config works perfectly. Im using this pc mainly as a workstation. No eventlog errors nor dumps are generated.
- Windows Server 2012R2
- FX-8350, non OC
- ASRock 870 Extreme R2 (Crappy board imho)
- 32GB DDR3 1866@1600 (My motherboard, against the "support" for 1866ram won't work with full speed)
- 120GB SSD
- 4.5TB Storage space device
I dont think that its due to my system, because vmware workstation was running without problems.
Did I forget to configure something? Any help is appreciated.
P.S: Even deactivating C1E, C6, C&Q didnt work.
P.P.S: With no virtual network adapter set, the system still locks up. Creating a first gen vm without any hdds and network and launching works. Attaching a boot dvd causes the host to freeze.
The host freezes as the gen1 vm begins to boot, doesn't matter if from dvd or hdd
