Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 x86 on Oracle VirtualBox 6.0 takes ages for an internet connection to establish on a cold boot or after restart

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,

 

So I've made a Windows XP Professional SP3 x86 VM on Oracle VirtualBox 6.0 (6.0 4 r128413 Qt5 6.2). I've updated Windows to a stage where when I check for updates it comes back with nothing on either express or custom, since doing that though I've ran into an issue where it takes about a solid 3 minuets for an internet connection to establish on a cold boot or after a restart. I've tried everything but nothing seems to work however when I try the same thing on another PC it connects to the internet instantly. Is there a way to fix this?

 

Thanks

It might be worth setting up the vitral box agen or messing with the port settings in the virtualbox settings for that vm

I've tried it twice now the first time was with Home Edition SP3 x86 and got the same results, now obviously I'm trying Professional SP3 x86. I've tried messing with the port and network settings in VirtualBox but nothing seems to work.

How strange

Yeah and the strangest thing is that before updating Windows it would connect instantly.

Maybe just reverted back to that version and just except it is not the newest version

I've proven it's not the updates though since on another PC it connects instantly even with it updated as much as it can be.

What interests me is how you have been able to update Windows XP. I have created an XP VM using VirtualBox to try to replicate your issue on my setup but I am unable to update.

I also would like to clear this one up. You are not talking about a general network connection and in fact the actual internet correct?

Just go on YouTube and watch tutorials on how to do it that's I did, just make sure you do the activation hack in regedit 😉. I downloaded an XP compatible version of Opera on my actual PC and dragged it into the VM and installed it, this somehow makes the update service site work. When you press 'Express' you should get the first wave of updates (about 120 mainly security updates) then obviously after that do repeated checks on express and custom, the last few wave of updates are usually. NET Framework security updates which do take a while to install. Obviously it depends on download speed but it took me about an hour and a half to get to a point where there no new updates available, you do have to be dedicated though as it can get quite boring.

Actually when I think about it, it's slow on establishing a network connection, should have made that more clear before.

Okay, awesome, I will get that going.

Not sure what this could be at this stage. So you mentioned you have tried this on another machine and no issues. 
On the other machine, was this a fresh install of windows xp and updates, or did you import the VM over to the machine?

Okay. 

Maybe export the VM from the faulty machine, Import it on the known working machine and see if there is a change. Also vice versa with the copy on the known working machine. 

If that makes sense.
