Graphic anomalies in Windows 10 2004

Reported by: awhb Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 6.1.4
Keywords: Windows 10 2004, graphic anomalies Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows

Description

I have installed Windows 10 2004 64-Bit as guest under Windows 10 64-Bit 1909 as host system. Graphic adapter is VBOXSVGA with 3D acceleration. Actual guest additions are running. The Windows start menu and the task bar are completely tranparent and not grey transparent, so the text cannot be read. Furthermore the settings dialog seems to freeze, after minimizing and maximizing the windows changes are visible. When I disable transparency effects in the settings under personalizing, colors, everything works fine. I observed this problem first time in Windows 10 2004 as guest, in Windows 10 1909 the graphic output was OK.

Same configuration with same issue here. I'm using VBox v6.1.4 with appropriate extension pack and guest additions.

Yep me too, exact same issue! The previous Windows build does not experience this issue with VB.

I experienced this after upgrading the 1909 guest to 2004 final version (10.0.19041.264) yesterday. Host is running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, VirtualBox version is '6.1.6_Ubuntu r137129'. Exactly the same issue, probably the VBoxSVGA driver does not handle the transparency effects correctly. Please fix.

Replying to MatyasJani:

I experienced this after upgrading the 1909 guest to 2004 final version (10.0.19041.264) yesterday. Host is running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, VirtualBox version is '6.1.6_Ubuntu r137129'. Exactly the same issue, probably the VBoxSVGA driver does not handle the transparency effects correctly. Please fix.

NB: The VBoxSVGA adapter is not the default graphics adapter for Linux guests, that would be VMSVGA. Ie. there will be no "fix" for your issue in the VBoxSVGA issue anyways. Also try version 6.1.8.

Resizing the Windows Desktop doesn't work as expected anymore. Fullscreen is affected as well. I use 6.1.8

comment:6 Changed 6 weeks ago by hacker1024

I'm getting this too. Arch Linux host, VirtualBox 6.1.8, Windows 10 build 19041 (which is standard 2004). Switching off 3D acceleration fixes the issue, but of course disables acceleration, so it's not a real fix.

 It's also been mentioned on Reddit.

I have the same problem.

macOS Catalina 10.15.5 host,
VirtualBox 6.1.8,
Windows 10 build 19041(2004) guest,
VBoxSVGA with 3D acceleration on.

Attach the image.

I've encountered the same problem, and my machine setup is the same as @t.y-west (e.g., macOS Catalina 10.15.5, VB 6.1.8, etc.). Although this is indeed a VB bug, you can get your Windows VM back on its feet by doing the following.

  1. With your Windows 10 2004 guest VM turned off, disable the "Enable 3D Acceleration."
  2. Power on your Windows 10 2004 guest VM and log into Windows.
  3. Open your Windows 10 Settings, and go to the Personalization page.
  4. Go to the Colors settings and turn off "Transparency Effects".
  5. Shut down Windows and re-enable "Enable 3D Acceleration."
  6. Run Windows again and you should be back up and running.

For what it's worth, this issue does not occur in VMware, so it's specific to VirtualBox. But the above steps are at least a workaround.

Ditto here (Ubuntu Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS 64bit, VirtualBox 6.1.10 and Guest Additions). Disabling 3D helps.

Roughly the same for me. I have several Ubuntu guest machines (19.10 and 20.04) on Windows 10 Pro that worked quite well under Virtualbox 6.1.8. After upgrading to Windows 10 Pro 2004 both would hang on boot. I updated to VirtualBox 6.1.10 with the same results. I then disabled 3D acceleration and while the guest machines will boot and are usable I'm seeing screen blanking and redraw from time to time and some random crashes within Ubuntu.

I'm seeing "GUI: UIMachineLogicFullscreen: Guest-screen count changed" in the log when screen blanking occurs however I'm not actually doing anything of the sort. I'm running on a multi-monitor setup with the guest machines in a window or full screen on a single monitor. I'm attaching two logs, one with 3d enabled (almost completes startup but hangs with a cursor on black window) and one with 3d disabled.

Apologies if this should be a separate issue, leaning toward it being related tho.

Yes, I have same issue, my host is Arch Linux, VBox is 6.1.10, guest is windows 10 2004 with latest Guest Additions installed. I have to turn off 3D so far, hope this issue could be fixed soon. Thank you!

Exact same issue: Host=Arch, VM: Win10-2004, VBox 6.1.10, latest GuestAdds (6.1.10), Drv VBoxSVGA 128MB, 2 Screens.

Turned of 3D, temporary fix.
