I am using Virtual Box version 4.2.4 which is installed on Windows XP SP3

I have installed Oracle Linux on virtual box and when I shutdown or re-start linux, I get the following and it freezes at this point.

virtualbox ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:00:11.0 disabled

I have not enabled 3D acceleration and once I made preview in virtual box as Update Disabled guest installation got lost and I had to re-install guest additions.

How can I resolve this issue?

Any help is highly appreciable

Do you shutdown VM via Host+H ? – Volodymyr M. Nov 13 '12 at 12:51
@inhabitant When I shutdown or restart guest OS which is Oracle Linux, virtual box and guest OS hangs or freezes during the restart or shutdown when it reaches at this point. virtualbox ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:00:11.0 disabled. Regards – user75ponic Nov 13 '12 at 12:54
You need to check whether ACPI shutdown is enabled in Oracle Linux, if Not - it should be enabled. Perhaps, this article will help you. – Volodymyr M. Nov 13 '12 at 12:57
@inhabitant I will check this. I have a question though, I do shutdown or restart from guest OS and do I still need to enable APCI? Regards – user75ponic Nov 13 '12 at 13:03
Make sure it's not trying to deal with a CD-ROM it can't find. See – CAD bloke Nov 25 '14 at 6:32

The issue is resolved by enabling IO APIC in Virtual Box.
