Can not create EFI guest on Solaris => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: baro Owned by:
Priority: major Component: EFI
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Solaris

Description

Using a Solaris host (I have tried S10U9 and svn_151a) when I create a guest with "Enable EFI" checked, the VM crashes before the splash screen and pops up an error dialog with "File Not Found". When I try this on 3.2.12, I can get to the EFI shell, but it fails on 4.x versions.

  • Summary changed from Can not create EFI guest on Solaris to Can not create EFI guest on Solaris => Fixed in SVN

Fixed and should be available in the next release. Thanks for the report.

For now, As a workaround you can do (assuming you're running 64-bit host ISA):

sudo ln -sf ../VBoxEFI32.fd /opt/VirtualBox/amd64/
sudo ln -sf ../VBoxEFI64.fd /opt/VirtualBox/amd64/

But make sure you run:

sudo rm -rf /opt/VirtualBox/amd64

after you uninstall this version before installing the newer version (when it's released).
