Hi,

I am running virtualbox 3.2.12 and wanted to install debian on it (newest iso debian-507-amd64-netinst.iso downloaded yesterday) and that freezes my computer (amd64) completely. I reproduced it two times.
During installation I select all german settings and default partitioning. When the virtual drive gets formated my computer freezes. Only a hard reset helps. I dont find any trace in the logs.
Has anybody seen a similar issue? Any suggestions what is happening?

Matthias

Two more findings:
#1) the computer freezes immediately when I start iceweasel 3.5.16 while the virtual drive gets formated
#2) Before the freeze the debug message on the console is:
      Code:

The computer is still running after the message popups. It freezes only after iceweasel is started.

No log entries found.

Futher investigation revealed:

#1) Crash has nothing to do with iceweasel in conjunction with Virtualbox. The crash happens even without any other program running.
#2) with graphical debian installer the computer freezes completely
#3) with the curses based installer the computers x-session is only partially usefull. Could logout, but reboot or poweroff do not work, neither does network. Feels like a partial crash of important subsystems. Hard reset needed anyways.

Is this a bug in Virtualbox or in the Debian Installer? I would assume Virtualbox.
