vboxdrv HPET warnings

Postby Guyver » 14. Nov 2012, 17:11

I am getting the following in my /var/adm/messages file...

vboxdrv: [ID 542971 kern.notice] HPET: using timer above configured range: 3

it occurs each time I boot a VM.

Solaris 11.1, VBOX 4.2.4 - Lenovo T510 - the rest as previously disclosed in the threads about USB devices appearing/disappearing...

I don't think HPET is enabled by default. Have you enabled it or checked that it is enabled?

Check status:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage showvminfo <VM Name> --details

Turn on/off
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage modifyvm <uuid|name> [--hpet on|off]

That's the odd part... it's disabled in the VM - yet, I can consistently get the message in /var/adm/messages if I reboot the VM....

That is odd. Maybe Ramshanker will drop by and can explain.

I've turned hpet on and off in the vm, restarting the VM after each change. The message gets logged regardless of setting.

It's a Windows 7 Pro - 64bit guest OS - if that makes any difference at all.

Could you please post the full VBox.log for the VM?

... as a compressed attachment please (e.g. .zip), to avoid hitting the limits on file size.
