Brief update: still running :D , 160 days of CPU time (I suspend work during primegrid challenges).

Big news, it just survived the W10 upgrade which surprised the heck out of me (and a BOINC upgrade, but no VM upgrade was performed). So much for keeping the system stable :bugeye: !

So, I'll keep ignoring this wu and watching wingmen crash & burn. :crying:

cheers,

Well .. "Postponed: VM Hypervisor failed to enter an online state in a timely fashion". :worry: Right. Don't upgrade BOINC while running RNA. :attention:

What bites me is that it did work initially, but windows rebooted last night and .. :drinking:

off to try last ditch rollback of BOINC ..

Edit: It's running again, under it's old BOINC version of 7.6.9. Let's see if this lasts :good:

If you'd like help upgrading BOINC without trashing your RNA World tasks, I can help, over something "immediate" like Skype or Teamspeak or phonecall.

It's ... tricky to some extent. I usually Activity -> Suspend, wait until Task Manager shows CPU isn't being used anymore, exit BOINC, wait until Task Manager doesn't show any more BOINC processes or VBoxWrapper processes or VBoxHeadless processes, kill VBoxSVC.exe, upgrade BOINC, start BOINC, Activity -> Resume, cross fingers.

Remember .... preserve those RNA tasks at all costs. Be extremely gentle with them.
Glad you were able to recover, I think!

Success! Complete and waiting validation .. :roll2:

.. after 4659 CPU hours , several panic attacks, patience and more patience, plus an unreasonable amount of luck! :smoking:

!! NICE !!
Seriously, congratulations :)
Now's your chance to upgrade VirtualBox to 5.0.26, before you take on even bigger RNA World work!
