    BSOD In Workstation 8.0.1 On Windows 2008 R2 With VT/AMD-V Passthrough

    vmhugo Novice



      I had this BSOD in 8.0.0 and 8.0.1


      Host OS is Windows 2008 R2 SP1 with current patch levels


      Create a guest vm and install ESXi 5.0


      Under CPU, enable Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD-V/RVI


      Boot up ESXi 5.0


      Create a guest OS under ESXi 5.0 of Windows 7 32bit (used Windows 7 SP1 Intergrated 32bit VL)


      Once you get to the end of the install, especally around when it setting up the network, the whole OS (ie, the physical computer) will BSOD, messages on screen refer that it was shutdown to prevent damage, once I saw a memory management BSOD. Tried this build approx 4 time, each time it crashed.


      Log back on, and edit CPU's for ESXi 5.0


      disable Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD-V/RVI


      Reinstall Windows 7 32bit again. This time it will work. Tried this about 3 times without issues.


      CPU is a AMD X6 1055T 130W (Rev PH-E0). IMMOU and VT options enabled in the BIOS.


      Not sure if the issue is with ESXi 5.0 or Workstation 8.0.x


      I'm yet to try nested VM's on XenServer 6.0 with Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD-V/RVI enabled


      Any idea's?
