Thread: VirtualBox 6.0.4_SUSE r128164 - Win 7 "the BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant"

  1. #1

    Default VirtualBox 6.0.4_SUSE r128164 - Win 7 "the BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant"

    Since an zypper DUP a couple of days ago, my one WIndows 7 VirtualBox VM refuses to boot with the error

    Code:
    The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant
    Other linux based VMs appear to work as normal

    Arch linux users seem to be having the same problem as per this thread

    zypper info virtualbox tells me:

    Code:
    Information for package virtualbox:

    I apologise for using Win 7 - ;-) - but I have an Arturia Spark LE and SPARK 2.0 software, and I was wanting to do some drum song / pattern writing today, and couldn't do so.


    (I think I had issues last time I tried this software with Wine - maybe it's time I tried again?)



    I haven't tried to fix this yet by reverting to an earlier version of VirtualBox...

    Although the following Virtualbox forum thread is not the same problem because those posters have a problem with Virtualbox 6.0.6 and were able to resolve by rolling back to version 6.0.4 (your problem appears to be with 6.0.4), do the screenshots and behavior appear to be the same otherwise?

    The following Virtualbox documentation appears interesting,
    I wonder if you could skip to the last lines in the section and run that command to extract information from your system, then insert in your Guest configuration. Or, I suspect because these settings are entirely related only to EFI(FAIK all Windows 7/8/10 installs default to setting up EFI), if your Windows VM were to be configured to disable booting from EFI and instead boot "legacy MBR" if that could solve your problem... But that might be difficult to modify in a Guest that won't boot in the first place so might more likely apply to a new install.

    Keep in mind that Virtualbox 6 is a massive change implementing lots of new architecture and was launched very, very recently.
    If you're running Virtualbox 5, Virtualbox is still supporting an update path that does not upgrade to Virtualbox 6.

    Did you read this thread? It points to another thread where user reports that VB built with ACPICA 20190215 works ans VB built with later ACPICA fails. ACPICA was updated in factory couple of weeks ago and current VB is built against acpica-20190405-1.1.

    OTOH thread you link to also says that VB 6.0.6 works.

    At this point you should open openSUSE bug report against VB and point to both threads so it can be investigated. May be VB just needs updated.

    Yes, I did some more digging after posting this topic, and read the Arch and VirtualBox threads in more detail ...

    I'm just off to post a bug report



    And in reply to tsu2 - yes the screenshots and behaviour identical as to what is described in the first post on

    except as you both have pointed out I'm having issues with 6.0.4, and Arch is having problems with 6.0.6

    It appears this was previously reported in Bug No 1132941.

    Yes, looks like it was posted in the 25 minutes or so I took whilst writing mine, as it wasn't there when I started writing it...

    I've marked that one as "confirmed", marked mine as a duplicate, and added what the arch bug tracker said was the fix

    ie

    "iasl from acpica 20190329-1 miscompiles ACPI tables of VirtualBox. Building with older acpica fixes the issue"

    Bug is reported as confirmed and Larry Finger states:

    "The upstream acpica project is aware of the problem (https://github.com/acpica/acpica/issues/462) and is working on the issue as of 3 days ago."

    See https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_b...?id=1132941#c4

    Mine is doing this as well..

    Is there anything simple I can do, like downgrade a specific package? I don't really want to compile a test version of acpica and then compile VBox, etc.. I need this for work, but not quite that badly.

    Oracle do have their own VirtualBox repo, although it's not set up to work with Tumbleweed, but you can modify the repo file to make it work

    Code:
    [virtualbox]
    name=VirtualBox for openSUSE 42.3 x86_64
    enabled=1
    autorefresh=1
    baseurl=http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/opensuse/42.3/x86_64
    type=rpm-md
    priority=120
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=https://www.virtualbox.org/download/oracle_vbox.asc
    keeppackages=0
    It is set up to work with Leap, so I looked at the URL path and modifed the baseurl line above manually

    HOWEVER

    I get a dependency issue

    Code:
    sudo zypper in VirtualBox-6.0
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    Problem: nothing provides libvpx.so.1()(64bit) needed by VirtualBox-6.0-6.0.6_130049_openSUSE132-1.x86_64
     Solution 1: do not install VirtualBox-6.0-6.0.6_130049_openSUSE132-1.x86_64
     Solution 2: break VirtualBox-6.0-6.0.6_130049_openSUSE132-1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies
    And at this point I haven't had time to fix that. And of course this may break other things.

    When I have time this evening, I may investigate further - but my Windows 7 vm is not mission critical. but I am doing actual development work on various debian based VBox VMs that are currently working, and I need to work, so I'm reluctant to potentially break them

    I'd prefer a OpenSUSE Tumbleweed solution that allows me to revert to the VirtualBox 6.0.4-3.1 that was working (with a Win 7 VM) a week or so ago
