After BSOD -- Windows Se7en

As most of my readers know my day-to-day desktop OS is Ubuntu (Linux). However I still use Windows (on VirtualBox) in certain cases, usually software testing. These days I'm involved in some work that involve 'eavesdropping' on COM port for nothing but පිටිපස්සේ අමාරුව. :P

When I switch from seamless mode to windowed mode, the machine held itself. On the top there was a greenish stripe with some random dots, and mouse pointer animation has stopped. However I could move the mouse over -- of course I should be able to do that since it supports mouse pointer integration.

I waited about 5 mins for the VM to respond; and there was no response and I rebooted. After reboot I got to know that it was a BSOD :P . I never knew before -- so no screenshot.


So that's how BSOD in Windows Se7en on VirtualBox! (It's not really blue :P )

the original intention of BSD is to kick in as a low level fail-safe mechanism to prevent OS from major damages. what you experience has to be something that is no handled properly in virtualbox. anyway, greetings for breaking the win7 somehow :P

I also guess so... because this occurd when I try to leave the Seamless Mode. Seamless mode is something handled with VBox + Guest Additions.

And.. thanks for the comment. :-)
