Ticket #7216 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
Host freezes after resuming from suspend (S3)
|Reported by:||yannisf||Owned by:|
When resuming after having suspended (S3) with a running VM with vt-x enabled, the host freezes. The host also freezes if you follow this scenario: a VM is started, then turned off, then close virtualbox, then suspend, then resume (this succedes), then open virtulbox and run a VM. The host freezes again.
This issue is already quite "talked about" and I stand that it is a motherboard/BIOS issue. But Gigabyte is not so fond of admitting it.
I was wondering if virtualbox could implement a work around, since this is not a fundumentaly hardware issue. I mean vt-x works after all. It is that the BIOS does not re-enable them after a suspend. That is why I filed the issue as enhancement and not a defect.
