2.12. Configuring Custom ACPI Tables

Oracle VM VirtualBox can be configured to present up to four custom ACPI tables to the guest. A command such as the following can be used to configure custom ACPI tables. Note that CustomTable1, CustomTable2, and CustomTable3 are available in addition to CustomTable0.

VBoxManage setextradata "VM name"
"VBoxInternal/Devices/acpi/0/Config/CustomTable0" "/path/to/table.bin"

Configuring custom ACPI tables can for example avoid the need for asking for a new product key on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and later guests. On Linux hosts, one of the system's ACPI tables can be read from /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/.
