My first attempt to install Sun's VirtualBox 2.0.2 for Windows hosts x86 on a Vista Home Edition laptop...

I crated a new box, hd, mem, nat, etc... plenty of memory... when I start the XP VM, the XP install process starts... it goes through the setup sequence,but them the VM tries to start the XP OS I'm getting the blue screen with main message:

"SESSION3_INITIALIZATION_FAILED"

and on the bottom:
"*** STOP: 0X0000006F (0X000012F,0X000000,0X00000,0X00000)

This STOP error refers to a rare failure in initializing system critical hardware drivers. Since you have no access to the OS whatsoever (or does Safe Mode work??) I guess there is not much you can do about it, other than reinstall and try again from scratch.

Before you do that, you might want to give MS VirtualPC 2007 a chance: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=04D26402-3199-48A3-AFA2-2DC0B40A73B6&displaylang=en

I do not usually recommend using MS applications over others, but in the present case this might indeed make sense, because they are the developers of both the host and client OS's which might lead to better results.
The downloadf page does not list Vista Home among the required systems, but that seems to mean that there will not be support for users running VirtualPC on Vista Home, it doesn't mean that it wouldn't run (as is specified in the last section of this post: http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.mac.virtualpc/msg/bd8b62403c6a1de1)

Good luck.
