Hi, I installed VirtualBox on an XP machine. I run the wizard to create my first vm which I want to be WinXP also.
Everything went well in the creation wizard, then I started the machine and I got to the "First Run Wizard" which asked me for the winxp media (I'm using a an iso image) and it starts installing.
I got to see the initial screens of WinXP installing and sudenly my host (physical computer) simply restarts without any warning.
I'm new to this but since all is being done using the wizards I guess it is a problem either due to VirtualBox or to my physical computer configuration (Dell Optiplex 740 AMD 642 X2 Dual Core 2GHz,4GB RAM winXP Prof SP3).
Any ideas?

Still having problems with this version. Version 3 introduced errors which for me made my virtual machines work nowhere near as well as previously. Have reverted back to 2.2.4 for now, as it still works perfectly for me. This is an excellent free program, I hope they can sort out these issues with the new releases.
