    BSOD's issues on VirtualBox


    Hello W10 community,

    I have installed windows 10 as guest on VirtualBox but have BSOD issues. Host is Linux.

    any idea? Is windows 10 not suitable for VB?

    Thanks in advanced.

    I've not had problems with Windows 10 as a guest on Virtualbox.

    Use QEMU/KVM or Vmware Workstation as a VM Application.
    I don't have problems using W10 as a Guest in VBox. but not lag. (I just allocated 1gb of ram and 2 cpu cores on that)

    Are you using VM defaults, What are the VM specs, what host / kernel version are you on?

    No problems with W10 on VMware or QEMU on a Linux Host. I've used Fedora, OpenSuse and Arch linux as Hosts-- all of them run Windows 10 VM's just OK -- I know OP is inquiring about VBOX but I don't use that -- so point of this post is to say there's no inherent problems in running Windows 10 Guests on Linux Hosts.

    My current Host system is Arch Linux with kernel 5.11.16-arch-1 with KDE desktop and Wayland.

    I'm running the VM's with UEFI -- on Linux Hosts install package ovmf for UEFI boot of the VM if using QEMU / KVM Guests and get the Windows virtio drivers from the Red Hat virtio windows iso - downloadable from the Fedora site --it's free of course.

    Note even if your HOST is MBR (legacy BIOS Boot) you can still create and boot GUESTS in KVM/QEMU using UEFI mode (and even protected boot if you want to use protected boot) but you must ensure package OVMF is installed --that's the VM BIOS . You need to specify that at VM creation time - you can't change it afterwards without recreating the VM.

    Cheers

    Since the OP situation is VirtualBox, we'll try to help there.

    Here similar situation like yours; I'm on Fedora Xfce and no Vbox installed here either.
    All OK on 5.11.16 on QEMU/KVM.

    On Windows side I run Hyper-V.

    In any case should the issue persist, there are the VirtualBox forums regarding issues on Windows guests:
    virtualbox.org • View forum - Windows Guests

    And specific topics about running on Linux hosts:

    Thanks all of you for your times.

    I am on Manjaro with latest Kernel. I allocated 4 gb RAM and 2 CPUs and 80 gb storage Windows 10 guest.

    My host is on UEFI mode.

    Hi there
    @Ulysses

    Manjaro is a sort of "Arch Linux clone". Install KVM/QEMU as per :

    https://computingforgeeks.com/comple...x-and-manjaro/

    Then W10 VM's will run without fail.

    If you want to install VMWare - easy also enable the AUR and simply as root or sudo -- yay vmware

    Cheers

    Manjaro is an Pacman-based Linux distribution.
    Install KVM/QEMU by:
    Code:
    sudo pacman -S virt-manager qemu vde2 ebtables dnsmasq bridge-utils openbsd-netcat
    then, Start these services:
    Code:
    sudo systemctl enable libvirtd.service
    sudo systemctl start libvirtd.service
    Note   Note



    Or, if you want VMware:

    Update your system and install the necessary build tools

    Code:
    user $ sudo pacman -Syu git base-devel --needed

    Then check your kernel version(s) - example - remember to use the same version as Arch

    Code:
    user $ mhwd-kernel -li

    Then install the headers for your kernel(s) and dkms. Substitute $KERNELXYY with your currently running kernel

    Code:
    user $ sudo pacman -Syu $KERNELXYY-headers dkm

    Clone the PKGBUILKD script

    Code:
    user $ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/vmware-workstation.git ~/vmware-workstation

    Familiarize yourself with the content - it is all text files and you should read them and verify what they are doing.

    Code:
    user $ ls ~/vmware-workstation

    When you are satisfied - cd into the folder

    Code:
    user $ cd ~/vmware-workstation

    Run makepkg to install dependencies, build and install the package.

    Code:
    user $ makepkg -is

    The installer will write messages in the terminal on what to do next - follow the directions to load the kernel modules and enable vmware network service and usb service as needed.

    Code:
    user $ sudo modprobe -a vmw_vmci vmmon

    Note   Note
    OPTIONALS:

    There are three services that can be optionally be enabled:

    • vmware-networks.service: Provides network access inside VMs, most people will want this enabled
    • vmware-usbarbitrator.service: Allows USB devices to be connected inside VMs
    • vmware-hostd.service: Enables sharing of VMs on the network


    To start and enable vmware network

    Code:
    user $ sudo systemctl enable --now vmware-networks.service
    To start and enable usb passthrough

    Code:
    user $ sudo systemctl enable --now vmware-usbarbitrator.service
    To start and enable the sharing of a virtual machine

    Code:
    user $ sudo systemctl enable --now vmware-hostd.service

    VMware - Manjaro
