    What I do for a trouble free installation of TW from Oracle. I created a
    local dir repo on my system where I download the new versions of TW. Not
    only are the rpm files placed there but also the needed extension files
    for ease of access. (I actually have versions of TW going back to the
    3.x versions.) I currently use the rpm provided for openSUSE 15.0. After
    installing the latest version of TW I start the TW management program
    and install the extension pac. The only recent problem was with having
    to also install the libvpx library which I found using osc.
    Using this procedure I rarely have problems installing and using TW.
    I hope this helps anyone having issues with the openSUSE provided
    version of TW.

    Please replace TW with VB, I use the Oracle version of VB on TW.

    I probably took the long way around, but I dealt with this issue by:

    * Restoring a partition saved before the 20190412 snapshot that introduced the villainous 20190405 acpica.
    * Locking acpica, virtualbox, virtualbox-host-kmp-default, virtualbox-host-source, virtualbox-qt
    * Zypper dup to the current 20190428 snapshot
    * as root, /sbin/vboxconfig to help Virtualbox deal with the kernel update

    I hope someone posts a heads' up when the acpica problem is fixed, so I can remove the locks. In the meantime, my Win7 VM works again.

    Just like to confirm that the 6.0.6 TW release of VirtualBox still has this ACPI bug that affects Window 7 VMs

    Code:
    Information for package virtualbox:
    -----------------------------------
    Repository     : openSUSE-Tumbleweed-Oss  
    Name           : virtualbox               
    Version        : 6.0.6-1.2                
    Arch           : x86_64                   
    Vendor         : openSUSE                 
    Installed Size : 38.6 MiB                 
    Installed      : Yes                      
    Status         : up-to-date               
    Source package : virtualbox-6.0.6-1.2.src 
    Summary        : VirtualBox is an Emulator
    Description    :

    I removed my official "Oracle" repo , rebooted, disabled that repo, and installed VirtualBox from the TW repo.

    And my Win7 VM will not boot as described because the "BIOS in the system is not fully ACPI compliant"

    I know Larry Finger has tried to get the OpenSuse factory people to realise that there is a bug in the toolchain when building VirtualBox

    It appears that they have chosen to release an update whilst still using that broken toolchain.

    I will revert to the official Oracle repo, repo file as below (Now using Leap 15.0 not 42.3 a I posted earlier up this thread)

    /etc/zypp/repos.d/Oracle_virtualbox.repo
    Code:
    [oracle_virtualbox]
    name=VirtualBox for openSUSE 15.0 x86_64
    enabled=1
    autorefresh=1
    baseurl=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/opensuse/15.0/x86_64
    type=rpm-md
    priority=120
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox.asc
    keeppackages=0

    and remove the TW packages

    I'd rather not do this

    (and to be honest, I'd rather not have to use any software that uses Windows, but if anyone can get Line6/ Yamaha / Arturia to release software for linux then fine)

    (Line6 HX Stomp is my latest irritation there) (sigh)

    ;-)

    Thanks for the update on ACPI, iDominic42.

    If I correctly interpret the change log at:

    https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog-6.0#v6

    I shouldn't expect the 5.1 kernel to work with my locked VB 6.0.4. When 5.1. reaches Tumbleweed, I'll probably lock the kernel in Yast until a Win 7 compatible ACPI reaches the repositories. Sooner rather than later, I hope.

    A heads up, to save trouble for others: I spotted a new acpica (20190509) in the announcement for snapshot 20190525 -- https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00308.html -- and assumed that it would include a fix for the non-starting Windows 7 VMs problem.

    Not for me. I removed all locks, zypper dup'd to virtualbox 6.0.6 and the 20190509 acpica, and pulled a blue screening Windows 7 VM on the first test. Back to VB 6.0.4. and a locked acpica go I.

    hello, I am also affected by this problem... for many weeks now. I do not really understand who messed this up (the version from the oracle repo seems to work) but is there any solution in sight?
