#18225 closed defect (obsolete)

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.

Please reopen if still an issue with a recent VirtualBox release and provide a VBox.log of the affected VM.
