29. srpna 2009 12:52I have Virtual PC RC on my Windows 7 Home Premium x64 machine. I was testing MDT 2010, and running two virtual machines, an XP SP3 and a Server 2003 SP2. Integration components are installed to both machines. I had an image capture task running for approximately an hour, with high network and disk utilization. During that, the taskbar buttons for my virtual machines suddenly disappeared. I took a look at the Virtual Machines folder, and tried to reopen their window. It appeared for a moment, but closed immediately. I realized that my virtual machines were in powered down state. I tried to start them again, but the response was: there isn't enough resource to start them. This is strange, bacause I have 8 gb of RAM, and each of my virtual machines uses 768 mb. I checked the eveng log, but found nothing interesting. Finally, I had to restart the host, and the virtual machines are working again. Windows Server 2003 asked me why the previous shutdown was unexprected.
Did anyone face with such a problem?
7. září 2009 11:55did you face the issue again? where was the image capture application running? on the host or in a VM? also did you check the memory usage of the host at the time you faced the problem to see if some application is indeed eating up a lot ram?
13. září 2009 18:06Yes, I faced it again after rebooting my machine.
Everything was running in a virtual machine, the capture too.
I didn't check the memory usage explicitly, but I didn't notice excessive paging or other signs of memory lack.

I myself have the same problem. I've been trying to setup a slackware build of puppy linux, but the VM suddenly closes. The first two times i left the vm to run in the background while it was still booting up, but the third and 4th times i was actively interacting with the guest OS when the VM closed. Specifically, i had locked in the mouse and was operating it.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
guest OS: 'slacko puppy' v5.3.3
virtual PC version: 6.1.7601.17514
