Are you supporting power management states described in the ICH specifications for powering on the device only when it starts being used , or do you assume that these virtual devices will be always on and that the guest’s driver will not verify it? I had already tried this driver. Clearly, the choice of the old ICH for the virtualized emulation was a really poor choice of VirtualBox designers, and it would have been much better to emulate a supported device without such known hardware bugs: This can only be explained by differences in the emulation layer of the host, not on the guests as they are strictly identical. AC’97 Digital Controller – is an independent module and varies in features and implementation from vendor to vendor. It is very well documented and easily available.
