BIOS microcode patch for AMD Athlon 64

Reported by: David Sain Owned by:
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: majorminor

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.
