Description

OpenIndiana 2017.04 ISO attached to LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI from VirtualBox 5.1.22 sometimes fails in bootloader with

  • "No rootfs module provided, aborting", or
  • "can't open /boot/forth/beastie.4th: no such file or directory"

This is how the VM is created:

VBoxManage  createvm --name SUT-1 --register
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --ostype Solaris11_64 --longmode on
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --memory 1536 --cpus 1
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --boot1 disk --boot2 dvd
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --vrdeproperty VNCPassword=nots3cr3t
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --vrde on --vrdeaddress '' --vrdeport 5901
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --vram 4 --accelerate3d off --audio pulse --audiocontroller ac97
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --nic1 nat --nictype1 82540EM --cableconnected1 on
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --mouse usbtablet
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --ioapic on --apic on --x2apic off --acpi on --biosapic=apic --pae off --rtcuseutc on
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --chipset ich9
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --uart1 0x3F8 4
VBoxManage  modifyvm SUT-1 --uartmode1 tcpserver 12341
VBoxManage  storagectl SUT-1 --name SCSI --add scsi --controller lsilogic --bootable on --hostiocache on
VBoxManage  storageattach SUT-1 --storagectl SCSI --port 0 --device 0 --type dvddrive --medium OI-hipster-text-20170502.iso
VBoxManage  createhd --filename SUT-1_1 --size 20480
VBoxManage  storageattach SUT-1 --storagectl SCSI --port 1 --device 0 --type hdd --medium SUT-1_1.vdi
VBoxManage  startvm SUT-1 --type headless

Even if it's able to install the system, it than fails to boot from it.

Screenshots attached. prtconf -v as well.
