[Bug 1026994] Virtual Box fails upon start based on yast install

--- Comment #16 from Steve Thompson <stevet@xxxxxxxxxx> ---
Can't seem to get it to start via cli. For whatever reason, it can't find the
W7 file for running that copy of W7.

However, using the GUI, vbox starts up, and gets:
UEFI Interactive Shell V2.1
UEFI v2.40 (EDK II, 0x0000000)
Mapping table....

Now, if I go in and change the config info under System to disable UEFI, then
W7 starts to load and goes into a reboot loop.

At this point it is showing it has Chipset: PIIX3. ICH9 is the only other

Storage is showing a SATA controller, but type is AHCI w/ port count of 2.

As far as I know, the configuration information was not changed by me or the
end user (wife) from the time it last worked (LEAP 42.1) to now.

It would seem to me that if something changed, it is a result of the "install"
as I deleted Vbox completely and re-installed it once, thinking that I needed
to do that to pick-up the changes (which was wrong, it was some security patch

Since then, I did the install, and picked up the changes that you posted about,
and here is where I am now. Vbox starts up and even attempts to do a boot, and
then gets into the UEFI thing (which I don't recall setting), or with that
turned off, gets into a reboot loop.
