Re: Sounds not working on Virtualbox

57693 tested (VBox 4.2.4) and now AC97 seems to work again. However, sounds are very choppy and trying to listen to music makes no sense.

Re: Sounds not working on Virtualbox

Ok, AC97 tested on Windows 8 32bit and sounds worked fine provided that the proper driver was installed. So this is most likely a problem in ReactOS. I'll try the newest versions and some older stuff next...

Re: Sounds not working on Virtualbox

Tried 57581 in QEMU with AC97 and still didn't get sounds to work. Is there something I should do? What should I do when ReactOS gives the message about new device ("system device", "multimedia audio device") immediately after system installation? Trying to install the drivers automatically doesn't ...

Sounds not working on Virtualbox

I installed ROS 57578 on Virtualbox 4.2.2 running on LMDE 64bit and now I can't get sounds to work. Virtual sound card is set to AC97. I have installed the driver provided by the applications manager but sounds are still not working. If I click the speaker icon on the taskbar it says "No active mixe...

Re: [Urgent]Community your help is needed[Urgent]

Tested 54807 on VBox 4.1.8 running on Windows XP host. The setup closes itself every time it tries to register mshtml.dll. Virtualbox configuration was the same as above. (PIIX3 chipset) OS language was set to Finnish, could this have any effect on that problem? Also, installing it using the ACPI Un...

Re: [Urgent]Community your help is needed[Urgent]

Tested rev. 54789 on Virtualbox 4.1.8 on Windows XP. The setup either hangs or closes when trying to register mshtml.dll. I tried both normal and safe mode. VBox configuration: OS type set to Windows 2000 512MB RAM 1 CPU core (I have a singlecore CPU) 32MB video memory USB and Serial ports disabled ...

Re: BSOD with VirtualBox guest additions (incl. display driv

Hey thanks, I set video memory to 32MB and now the driver works. But now there are a few other issues... I tried to run the ReactX diagnostic tool (dxdiag) but it gives an error message. The same happens with some games. It seems that the driver installer replaces some system files which are needed ...

Re: BSOD with VirtualBox guest additions (incl. display driv

Tried 0.3.13 on XP host and the installer hanged when it was configuring hivesys.inf. Is this (and the mshtml bug) a problem with ReactOS, or have the Virtualbox developers messed something up? (Although Mandriva's repositories often contain old software the good thing is that buggy stuff is seeming...

Re: [Urgent]Community your help is needed[Urgent]

Hi Community! Well..you know that we are having big troubles with the mshtml bug . At this time I am sure you know it is not related to mshtml itself but to a problem in our MM. Right now we are trying to measure the impact and under which conditions and VMs the bug is happening. In order to have a...

Re: BSOD with VirtualBox guest additions (incl. display driv

What is the exact filename of ISO you used? Can you paste your vbox config somewhere? How much VRAM did you assign? Bootcd-54751-dbg.iso. Video memory was set to 128MB. I tested it also on Virtualbox 4.1.8 running on Windows XP but it didn't work that well. At first it was extremely slow but after ...

Re: BSOD with VirtualBox guest additions (incl. display driv

I installed version 54751 but installing the additions still results in a blue screen on boot (even in safe mode) caused by the Virtualbox display driver. (I haven't tested the additions without the display driver.) I'm going to test it on Windows XP host next although it will probably not have any ...

Re: BSOD with VirtualBox guest additions (incl. display driv

Ok, thanks for information. I'll try one of those versions.

By the way, could this be a host-based issue (I think not but...)? My GPU is quite old (Radeon x800 XL) and the proprietary Linux driver doesn't work with it. I have to use the old open-source driver which isn't really powerful.

Oh, I forgot the ReactOS version; it's the latest available from dowloads section. (0.3.13-REL)

BSOD with VirtualBox guest additions (incl. display driver)

Ok, I just installed ReactOS into VirtualBox (v. 3.1.8 OSE) running on Mandriva Linux. I got it to work but then I tried to install the guest additions, including the display driver which allows hardware graphics acceleration... Installation goes well but booting after the installation results in a ...
