[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 an ordered list please answer this post with the following information:
-Virtualizers that you have installed and its specific versions(really important!)
-Virtualizers that are giving you problems.
In case you are having these problems in Real Hardware too:
-RH details/configuration.
Use latest trunk (as any trunk version will suffer of the bug)and the DBG version: www.reactos.org/getbuilds

Please just answer with those, to avoid parallel conversations. As you can imagine this is really important.
Please test with all the virtualizers that you have currently installed.


Thanks for your unvaluable help!

bootcd-54707-dbg.iso
Host: Windows 7

Bochs 2.4.5, emulating 128 or 512 MB of RAM: mshtml bug.

I'll test it on Bochs 2.5.0 when I get home, but I was getting the bug under 2.5.0 as recently as a few days ago, so unless it's been fixed in the last few commits, it should still fail.

Host: Windows 7 x64-bit
All default install options, except for Display 800x600x32

VirtualBox 4.1.6:
ROS 54527 @ 256MB RAM -- hangs at mshtml.dll
ROS 54527 @ 512MB RAM -- installs fine

VirtualBox 4.1.8:
ROS 54527 @ 256MB RAM -- installs fine
ROS 54706 @ 128MB RAM -- installs fine
ROS 54706 @ 256MB RAM -- installs fine
ROS 54706 @ 512MB RAM -- installs fine

Might be worthwhile to look into the changes between VB 4.1.6 and VB 4.1.8.
I almost wish I hadn't upgraded VirtualBox - I haven't been able to reproduce the bug since. Hopefully that's helpful. ;)

REAL HARDWARE
Pentium 200mmx 128mb ram, 10gb hard drive, non-vesa PCI VGA card. ReactOS build was from a couple of weeks ago. - install stops at mshtml.dll with an error.

(deleting mshtml.dll, the install actually finished and it booted!- more on that later)

Athlon XP 2000 1gb ram - Also last tested with a build from at least a few weeks ago, ReactOS always seems to install without error.

Virtualbox 3.2.8
For me Virtualbox 3.2.8 has always succeeded in installing ReactOS with varying amounts of ram (256mb-1gb i think) and regardless of CPU acceleration settings. Tested on an Athlon X2 265 and an Athlon XP 2000.

Virtualbox 4.x
For me, Virtualbox 4.x failed with the installation. Mostly tested on an Athlon XP 2000 under Windows XP.

PS, I personally think bug bug 6720 (file system corruption) should also be fixed before release.

Please mind that mshtml bug seems to be time-critical - meaning that it will pop out randomly in certain conditions.

Based on yesterday's report, this should be no surprise, but I'll report it anyway.

It is not VBox specific. That fact has been fairly well established.

is it just me or are other people getting hangs elsewhere on second stage, usually I get as far as the mshtml bug, but occasionally I only get as far as a box flashing onto the screen which I think is the message about drivers but it isn't there long enough to read it then I get just a plain light blue screen.

For those who have problems (stucking at mshtml):
Could you test if release versions suffers from this bug too?
Please try any release version after 50000.
