Mouse and keyboard not working on VirtualBox 6

Postby Qwazzy » 8. Jul 2019, 21:09

I'm trying to install Ubuntu on VirtualBox 6.0.8 and neither mouse nor keyboard works on the guest machine, while icons on the bottom pane indicate that keyboard and mouse are captured. I have wireless usb Logitech mouse and keyboard and everything work absolutely fine on VirtualBox 5.

Host is Windows 10 with Hyper-V enabled.

That doesn't sound good... Take a look at the status bar. Do you have the "slow" icon (Image)?

If yes, look in the "Control Panel" » "Programs and Features" » "Turn Windows features on or off", and make sure that the none of the following are active:
If VirtualBox is running without Hyper-V enabled, where proper, hardware virtualization is actually available, then the standard virtualization icon (Image) would show. Disable Hyper-V in your host and see what happens...

To be 100% sure, we need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.
Do NOT reply with the "QUOTE" button, please use the "POST REPLY", at the bottom of the form.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
