See "Board index" » "General" » "VirtualBox on Linux Hosts" » "Arch host, Win7 guest BSODs: BIOS not fully acpi compliant" (https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=92709) and the latest reply from "yan12125" on 2019-04-22, 00:58 UTC (https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=92709&start=30#p446990):

For openSUSE users, an updated package is available as well. It will take a

does, https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1132941 has instructions on 
getting the corrected package.
