VM with Manjaro OS Unresponsive

Postby marcomotti » 1. Dec 2021, 18:23

Hi everyone!
I'm writing since I'm having quite a struggle with my VB... In particular I'm trying to use Manjaro (here's the latest version -> manjaro-xfce-21.1.6-211017-linux513) as a system to be installed on the VM, but anytime I'm working on that, also simply installing the OS, this freezes and stops being responsive. This doesn't happen only on my laptop, but also on another one. Also, it happens on another version I'm using on another VM (manjaro-xfce-21.1.5-211008-linux513)... Can someone help me solving this issue please?

Start the VM from full power off, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Please right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip the log file, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

Hyper-V is enabled. See HMR3Init: Attempting fall back to NEM (Hyper-V is active)

Your VM also has low RAM and processor count. Your host has room to give the VM 2 GB RAM and 2 processors. Performance will probably be better. Video RAM can increase, too, slide it all the way up.

Okay, I disabled Hyper-V and incremented the RAM to 4096MB and 2 processors, also sliding the video memory all the way up (only in the most recent log), but still the VM crashes. Should I try and increase the RAM and processor number even more? I noticed that close to the V symbol there's a bar going from green to red and when crashing that one was in the red part. Does it mean something?

The most recent log was a restore from saved state:
00:00:03.173337 Console: Machine state changed to 'Restoring'

so the changes may not have had an effect on the VM operation:
00:00:03.323428 VRamSize <integer> = 0x0000000001000000 (16 777 216, 16 MB)

From the three logs that showed a boot-up:
00:00:06.807487 PIIX3 ATA: LUN#2: CD-ROM block number 6142200 invalid (READ)
00:00:07.896390 PIIX3 ATA: LUN#2: CD-ROM block number 6142200 invalid (READ)
00:00:07.714117 PIIX3 ATA: LUN#2: CD-ROM block number 6142200 invalid (READ)

Looks like the ISO is bad.
