I have noted that Novell OES v6.5 does not boot correctly with the new VirtualBox installation and extension pack. Here are the steps I have proceeded with to find this issue and I have not seen this before with my prior upgrades through the VirtualBox software versions:
3) Starting this VirtualBox instance with VirtualBox 4.2.4 encounters the following as one of the messages in the boot-up process when acessing the System Console (Esc+Ctrl and Select 1. System Console):
"The running process will be returned to the safe state"
4) The system will not finish booting even after leaving sit for an extended period of time, such as 15 minutes or longer and no other output goes to the console. An incorrect shutdown is required to process anything different which also causes a disk check after every boot.
5) Removed VirtualBox 4.2.4 and reinstalled VirtualBox 4.1.22, and downgraded the VirtualBox extension pack to 4.1.22, and the VirtualBox machine works as normal before the upgrade with the same result as (1). I have confirmed that this an issue with the new upgrade and I have not seen this issue with other Operating System (OS) instances that I run in VirtualBox, such as Windows XP or Windows 7 x64.
Please advise if further information is required. Thank you for your consideration of this issue.
