openSUSE 11.1 guest OS hang during bootup process

Reported by: PITC Owned by:
Priority: major Component: virtual disk
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.4 Keywords: hung at bootup
Cc: anthonypowell@… Guest type: Linux
Host type: Linux

Description

Hi,

I have installed VirtualBox 2.2.4 on a physical machine using openSUSE 11.1 as the host OS and I have also created 3 VMs with openSUSE 11.1 as the guest OS. From time to time, I have noticed that the VMs sometimes hang during the boot up process. While booting up the VMs, the host CPU increases to 100% and state that the process is waiting for something to happen. I have review the output log of the VMs and noticed that there is a statement that says "Guest Log: BIOS: int13_harddisk: function 41, ELDL out of range 8c". Can you please direct me how I may resolve this issue?

Same problem on XP host. My case is almost same except that it happens when booting from suse's dvd. Sometimes it just hangs, sometimes not. (haven't tested on installed system though) I think that there is a possibility of some incompatibility with framebuffer device, because it hangs just right after passing bootloader menu. also those errors you've stated are in log even when opensuse dvd boots successfully:

00:00:10.498 Guest Log: BIOS: int13_harddisk: function 02, parameters out of range 0000/0000/0001!
00:00:10.498 Guest Log: BIOS: int13_harddisk: function 02, parameters out of range 0000/0000/0001!

00:00:10.499 Guest Log: BIOS: int13_harddisk: function 02, ELDL out of range 8c
00:00:10.499 Guest Log: BIOS: int13_harddisk: function 41, ELDL out of range 8d
00:00:10.499 Guest Log: BIOS: int13_harddisk: function 02, ELDL out of range 8d
00:00:10.499 Guest Log: BIOS: int13_harddisk: function 41, ELDL out of range 8e
00:00:10.499 Guest Log: BIOS: int13_harddisk: function 02, ELDL out of range 8e
...etc

but when it hangs it hangs here:

00:00:10.940 Display::handleDisplayResize(): uScreenId = 0, pvVRAM=00000000 w=720 h=400 bpp=0 cbLine=0x0
00:00:10.962 Display::handleDisplayResize(): uScreenId = 0, pvVRAM=04370000 w=1024 h=768 bpp=16 cbLine=0x800

00:00:13.049 PATM: patmR3RefreshPatch: succeeded to refresh patch at c03474bc 
------<then i'm turning it off from host menu, cause it's hung showing blackscreen>----------
00:00:50.358 Changing the VM state from 'RUNNING' to 'SUSPENDED'.

gonna attach log file...

I guess it is similar to this bug:  http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/3911 an it was first observed with VBox > 2.0.8.

Appears to me there are some function missing in the BIOS emulation which still persists till now VBox 3.0.4.

What do you mean "from time to time" ? How often it succeeds and how often fails?

I have openSUSE 11.1 working perfectly here. (32+64bit, SMP guests)

Host: Windows 7, x64, Core 2 Q6600, VBox 3.0.10. (obviously VT-x = on)

But you don't have VT.

This looks similar to bug #4865
