DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (storahci.sys) --- BSOD Running on VirtualBox

    Question

  • I'm trying to install the DP on VirtualBox, but I've got this error during the boot of the ISO image that I just downloaded from MSDN.

    The host is a Windows 7 Professional x64, the processor is an AMD Phenom II X2 3.2GHz with Virtalization enabled.

    Here is the error again

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (storahci.sys)

    Does anyone have any idea of how to solve this problem?

  • I had this same issue.  I changed my hard drive in VirtualBox from a SATA Controller in AHCI mode to and IDE Controller and it installed with no issues.

    For the record, prior to experiencing the issue, I had created a new virtual machine and chose Windows 7 as the machine's OS.  I kept all the default settings that VirtualBox sets for Windows 7.  The only setting that changed was the hard drive controller.  Worked fine after that.

  • Thanks -- this solution worked for me.  I deleted the default SATA Controller, and established the VHD as IDE Controller (Primary Master):
