Vbox failed to restore an os/2 4.52 instance after a repo update of Virtualbox from an interim version 6.1.13 (or 6.1.97). The error is shown below. The Display settings are disabled for the guest.

Windows guests start normally.

Unsupported version 22 of data unit 'vga' (instance #0, pass 0xffffffff) (VERR_SSM_UNSUPPORTED_DATA_UNIT_VERSION).

I did try to install the 6.1.14 distribution from the Vbox site. It had a dependency failure: "". Libvpx6 is installed on this host; adding the devel package made no difference.

You tried to load a saved state from a development version with an older version of VirtualBox which is not supported of course. Looks like you used 6.1.97 where we introduced some changes to the VGA saved state and tried to load it with 6.1.14. Dismissing the saved state and starting the VM normally should get rid of it.

Yes, that was the problem.

Thank you.
