Ryzen sure is great at crashing your VMs. Blows up on Win98se in the middle of installs.
Doesn't matter if it is VirtualBox or VMware, It will crater the old Win98se for sure. See:


This really makes no sense at all. The same install on Core 2 Duo, Sandybridge, Skylake, Kabylake, etc. has no such issues. If I take a pre-installed Win98se VM from any of those to the Ryzen machine, and it will crater on launch.

I wish I still had an old Socket 939 or Phenom II system to experiment, but the same crash is happening on my Ryzen 7 1700 and my Ryzen 6 1600. What the heck has AMD done?
