VBox 4.0.10 → 4.1.0 migration: can't restore some guests' state (ICH9 only)

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I had VBox 4.0.10 installed. Suspended all running Windows VMs before VirtualBox package upgrade. Upgraded my Linux kernel (2.6.32 → 2.6.39), then rebooted. Started VirtualBox package upgrade, everything was fine. Then tried to restore all my saved VMs. Most are started up fine, but 2 has been throwing an error: ich9pci#0: Device in slot 0xf0 has been removed! vendor=0x8086 device=0x244e [ver=2 pass=final] (VERR_SSM_LOAD_CONFIG_MISMATCH) A reset has helped.

Same here, VBox.log ends with an identical error (except for aIID).
However my host kernel is 2.6.35-30-generic (Ubuntu 10.10) and the suspended client was Ubuntu.

This comes from using the experimental ICH9 chipset.

Same here. There is bug report in FreeBSD's bugzilla:  https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=225288

Do not use ICH9. It is experimental. Which means it has bugs that they're aware of, that's why it's called experimental. Or else not even "alpha"...

This is a side effect of a code cleanup in 5.2.6. In the past with ICH9 there were unconditionally 2 bridges present, and now they're only present if the VM config needs them. The result is what you observed - a saved state incompatibility. It would be possible to fix this, but it's very hard to justify this effort for a feature which is marked as experimental, without having any explanation why ICH9 was picked.

If someone volunteers (and the error message is a good hint where the change would need to be) then of course we'd integrate a sensible fix/workaround, but otherwise it'll simply stay this way.
