[Qemu-devel] Guest page fault when running Norton Ghost

Using the latest Windows cvs build on FreeOSZoo (QemuInstall-20050212-pre), I 
get a page fault when I try to use the dos part of Norton Ghost 2003 backup 
program.  (The program does, of course, work properly under bochs, vmware, and 
real hardware.)

Using a fresh just installed copy of Dos 6.22, I get

Page Fault cr2=0fffbbb0 at eip 214; flags=3283
eax=ffffab00 ebx=1a001000 ecx=00000004 edx=ffffbbb0 esi=00281cb1 edi=00001031
ebp=ffffab7f esp=00003ffc cs=af ds=b7 es=b7 fs=a7 gs=0 ss=a7 error=0004

You can reproduce the fault by downloading the Ghost update from Symantec at:


unizpping it (it's just a zip file), and extract ghost.exe.  (That executable 
is the key disk backup program.  Everything else in the Ghost 2003 distro is 
just Windows gui and stuff.)

Copy it to your DOS qemu disk and try to execute 'ghost'.

The error occurs regardless whether I run it from DOS 6.22, or an genuine Ghost 
boot floppy.

I haven't tried it under the latest FreeDOS image, but it should give a similar 
error.  (Guess I need to download the latest ISO of it.)  (Hmm... ghost wont 
run.  And the freedos mouse driver and the help command seem to lock up the 
system.  Don't know if that's qemu related or not.)
