Hi all,

i've installed a VM AOS 5.0.3, it seems to runs well

- the ACPI shutdown of VBOX don't shutdown the VM
- if i add more than 1 CPU the AOS 503 VM still see only one
virtual CPU
(ACPI PSD is in config.sys)

host server is WS 2019 ST.ED.



I recommend not using more than 1 CPU in the VBox configuration.
Later versions of VBox work a little better than older ones, but it
looks like the support is similar to HYPERTHREADING, and
HYPERTHREADING is not, at all, friendly to OS/2. Using it will
probably result in hangs, after a while (usually less than 10

I think we need more information, to determine what may cause the
other problems. ACPI is probably not loading, for some reason.
Which kernel got installed? Try the ACPISTAT command, in a
command prompt.

What does happen when you do a shutdown?

AOS shut down, but the VM stay open
so that vbox don't understand that the guest OS has been shutdown

What install options did you select for ArcaOS?

virtual machine

What is "WS 2019 ST.ED"?

windows server 2019 standard edition (64bit ita)
