0.4.5 stuck before desktop with virtualbox

Post by xantares »

hello,

I installed the latest 0.4.5 version on virtualbox 5.0.40 on ubuntu 16.04.
It passes the bootloader, then reactos logo, the it's stuck to an empty desktop, like in this thread but with latest 0.4.5:

Thank you for trying ReactOS and letting us know your results. ReactOS is currently alpha level software under active development. Like all alpha software, ReactOS is not recommended for production use at this time.

First, take a look at the Virtualization Software page in the ReactOS Wiki. It links to a page with advice for using ReactOS within several popular virtual machine (VM) software products. There is a page for VirtualBox. Double check your configuration against that page's advice. Tell us how you configured VirtualBox and report all the non-default settings you are using.

Also, did you try any of the solutions proposed in the topic "VMware ESXi 5.5, doesn't load desktop" to which you linked? If so, what happened?

- Changed os type to Windows 2003 with no effect
- I already used the correct defaults advised for System and Network tabs
- Got some debug output on the serial port:

Re: 0.4.5 stuck before desktop with virtualbox

Post by middings »

Thank you for the additional information. Your problem requires somebody more expert with virtual machines than I am to identify the cause of the problem you found. However, there are still a few more things to try.

(1) If you have a choice between configuring your virtual machine (VM) to use a PS/2 or USB keyboard and mouse, choose PS/2. The ReactOS USB stack is still a work in progress and strange side effects can happen if ReactOS finds a connected USB device.

(2) The 0.4.5 release is over a 1-1/2 months old. There may have been a fix already put into the trunk build. You may wish to try the most recent trunk build (also called a daily build or a nightly build) of the debug CD version of ReactOS. Maybe you already tried this and that is what you meant by "Also tried the svn 0.5 debug boot cd..." (No, I don't know why it says "0.5". I find that very confusing. I suppose it makes sense to the developer team.) What we need to know is the Subversion (SVN) revision number of the ReactOS trunk build you tried. In the log that you captured, the line near the beginning that reads "ReactOS 0.4.5 (Build 20170513-r74533)" shows the SVN revision number as r74533. The most recent revision is 75271.

(3) Obtain a debug log that includes a backtrace. If the newer trunk build does not overcome the problem you see, any developer that sees this topic is almost certain to ask you for one. This post, [ReadThis]ReactOS doesn't work in my computer!!, is helpful. This wiki page, Debugging, might also be helpful.

The backtrace (command "bt") is needed only if something crashed and there was a break-in the debugger.
In the case of the reporter, it seems that ReactOS just hangs without having broken into the debugger. I suggest that the reporter, if ReactOS hangs again at the same place, presses the TAB+K keys on the keyboard, and then enter the command "proc list" at the debugger prompt (and validate), perhaps followed by the command "thread list" , and finally show the result of these commands here.

Re: 0.4.5 stuck before desktop with virtualbox

Post by milon »

@xantares, in case it's useful, here's a screenshot of my VirtualBox setup. I'm using VirtualBox 5.1.22, and it works great with the latest ReactOS nightly build (newer than 0.4.5, but that should work too).

[ external image ]

I clone the "ReactOS Clone Me" and attach the latest ISO to the clone. Makes testing much easier! Otherwise I have to recreate the settings each time, and I'm much too lazy for that. :D

I currently have the serial port (for debug logs) disabled, but it's pretty trivial to setup and connect PuTTY for an output log.

EDIT - The image is hosted on my Dropbox, so it should basically be around forever, but I'm going to attempt to future-proof anyway. The image is a picture of the VirtualBox Manager GUI, showing an installed system called "ReactOS Clone Me". Settings are:

General
  • Name = ReactOS Clone Me
  • Operating System = Windows XP (32-bit)
System
  • Base Memory = 256 MB
  • Boot Order = Floppy, Optical, Hard Disk
  • Acceleration: VT-x/AMD-V, Nested Paging
Display
  • Video Memory = 16 MB
  • Remote Desktop Server = Disabled
  • Video Capture = Disabled
Storage
  • Controller = IDE
  • IDE Primary Master = ReactOS-HDD.vhd (Normal, 10.00 GB)
  • IDE Primary Slave = ReactOS-Apps.vhd (Normal, 20.00 GB)
  • IDE Secondary Master = [Optical Drive] Empty
Audio
  • Host driver = Windows DirectSound
  • Controller = ICH AC97
Network
  • Adapter 1 = Intel PRO/1000 T Server (NAT)
USB
  • USB Controller = OHCI
  • Device Filters = 0 (0 active)
Shared Folders
  • None
Description
  • None
NOTE: I have 2 HDD devices for simplicity. The first (ReactOS-HDD.vhd) is an empty virtual drive. When I clone this system, I create a full clone (not linked) so that the new VM also has an empty primary drive. The second HDD is preloaded with apps/software/drivers that I want to test in VBox, and it also gets cloned to the new system for easy testing.

The bootable CD needs to be in the primary slave and the hard drive the primary master. At least the bootable cd needs to be primary something. It took me time to find out too. It's written somewhere in the wiki but it's well hidden.

A few other things can cause issues in recent versions of Reactos if you install the guest additions with Virtual box. Until they are fixed you can turn off I/O host cache in the IDE controller and disable 2d acceleration.

The screenshot will be of great help to the OP. Thank you for posting it. A suggestion: please edit your post to name the exact version of VirtualBox you are using. This will keep your post useful for others in the future. A year from now "the latest VirtualBox" won't be today's latest VirtualBox.

Good call, middings. I meant to do that originally, and apparently I forgot to. Fixed!

Hi,

I have the same problem and I'm running Vbox 5.1.26 in Ubuntu 14.04

I have fiddle around a lot with different settings but nothing helps. The only fix for this I could find is to install a Nighty build, in my case ReactOS v0.5-SVN | Build: 20170809-r75512.GNU_4.7.2

You can find it at: https://iso.reactos.org/bootcd/

I repeat,
middings wrote:First, take a look at the Virtualization Software page in the ReactOS Wiki. It links to a page with advice for using ReactOS within several popular virtual machine (VM) software products. There is a page for VirtualBox. Double check your configuration against that page's advice. Tell us how you configured VirtualBox and report all the non-default settings you are using.
ZPQ, if a recent nightly build (r75512) is working for you then that is the fix you are looking for.

By the way, there is a release candidate (RC1) for ReactOS version 0.4.6. It was branched from the ReactOS trunk around r75445. The nightly build you tried, r75512, is a more recent version of the ReactOS trunk than 0.4.6 RC1.

For further assistance using ReactOS 0.4.5, please report step-by-step what you tried and the results you saw. Describe them as exactly as you can.
