BIOS microcode patch for AMD Athlon 64

Reported by: davidsain Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: host support
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Solaris
Host type: Windows


My most is running an FX-60 dual core x64 CPU running Windows XP x64 ed with VirtualBox 2.2. Guest is OpenSolaris 0805 (SunOS 5.11).

Upon startup of the guest reports the following error

<begin> WARNING: BIOS microcode patch for AMD Athlon(tm) 64/Opteron(tm) processor erratum 131 was not detected; updating your system's BIOS to a version containing this microcode patch is HIGHLY recommended or erroneous system operation may occur. <end>

OpenSolaris 0805 failed to run with earlier versions of VirtualBox (previous was 2.4).

  • Priority changed from major to minor

Just ignore this warning. We don't expose the microcode patch level of the host CPU to the guest. Not sure if we ever will as it's a potential security risk.

I think this needs to be closed as INVALID.
