The solution was to reinstall the vbox dkms package and do a manual modprobe of the modules it makes.
I never sorted out the unable to start due to the USB issue, I did have the guest additions installed but the only way to boot was to change the pointing device from USB to PS2 and then to disable the USB controller (if your pointing device is set as USB, disabling USB will not work because it will re-enable by default when it sees your pointing device is USB, this is w........
This server has been running for weeks without issue, it's currently only using 1 of 2 CPUs as it is running in the office as a test bed (mainly due to the handle 12 bay storage/great for testing HDDs). The errors below seem to mainly be from AMD CPUs, it's only happened a single time and in the days since Igot that error it hasn't occurrred.
Interestingly enough /proc/cpuinfo still shows all 4 cores of the CPU (Opteron 2373 Quadcore HE) and the functionality doesn't seem........
On the same OS with the same kernels basically I cannot boot FreeBSD installer, I believe the issue is the host CPU.
One host runs an Intel and works, while an Opteron 2373 does not work despite suggestions from this thread: http://126.96.36.199/showthread.php?t=36761
I've tried cpu options like "kvm64" "Opteron_G3" and none........
The first is a dual CPU AMD Opteron 2373EE (4 cores x 2) and I think it did bad because it has some old 250GB SATAs which can only do about 65MB/s max sequential reads. I think it should have blown away the second (AMD X4 640 Quad Core).

I've got one of these for testing projects from work at home and got more than I bargained for with the time I've spent on it due to the storage handing/Perc 6/i cards.
My particular model came with the following:
2U Rack Mount Server with Rails
2xOpteron 2373 EE (Quad Core, there is a 6-core version that can be found at times)
2 x 250GB Seagate SATA
2 x Dell Perc 6/i (horrible and a nightmare to work........
At first it was configured as a RAID 0, then I deleted the Virtual Disk Group.
I thought both drives would be shown and detected in Linux as sda and sdb but it actually shows nothing.
To make them work you have to hit Ctrl+R before the system boots (when prompted) and create a Virtual Disk Group. In my case I created each one as RAID 0 (with a single drive only) as I just wanted JBOD but there is no such option or default in these Dell Pe........
