86Box Crashes when Rebooting OS on Socket 4/5/7 Machine

Post by SupernovaNick »

On 86Box, if an OS such as Windows NT 3.x running on a Socket 4/5/7 (Pentium) machine reboots, 86Box will crash and close. This does not happen if I click "hard reset" or if I use another machine such as i486. It also never happens in PCem.

Does anyone else get this issue? Is there a fix?

Thanks.

ANY NT OS crashes under those machines. It's a known bug. Even Windows 7.
As for a fix, there's none. You need to manually restart 86box.
C'mon June, I can already smell the summer.

Want help? Sure, but I don't fix dishwashers. Or broken brain cells. I'll try my best at anything else.

Currently it's some regression around the SMI or some cpu one, and yes, already known. Will be fixed someday.
