VirtualBox 6.0 fails to boot when using EFI and NVMe disk with Debian 9.6 guest.

Reported by: pozix604 Owned by:
Component: virtual disk Version: VirtualBox 6.0.0
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X


Do the following to recreate the problem:

  • Install VirtualBox 6.0 and extension (I did this on macOS Mojave)
  • Create a new VM instance, 2GB RAM, 32GB disk
  • Attach disk to NVMe controller, make disk non-rotational
  • Turn on EFI
  • Boot the Debian 9.6 installer (debian-9.6.0-amd64-netinst.iso)with an IDE attached CD drive
  • Install the OS, using all defaults
  • When installation is complete, reboot

Upon reboot, Debian will fail to find disk nvme0n1p2 and bomb.

However, the exact same process works great with all versions prior, including VirtualBox 5.2.22.
