When booting into EFI in VirtualBox, the 2015.04 ISO in live mode fails to start Xorg server.
When booted using BIOS, it does work.

Here is the Xorg log from EFI boot:

I ran into this with QEMU/KVM VM using UEFI/OVMF instead of BIOS and Q35 chipset. Graphic device VGA(bochs) works fine, Virtio fails. If I force xdriver=vesa I'll get output similar to kunalg. Otherwise after vesa module loads glamor inits and crashes.

openSUSE doesn't seem to have this issue, like with VGA for KaOS, it instead fails to init glamor, complains that the screen does not support DRI2 and fallsback to software rendering with DRISWRAST. Gallium over llvmpipe takes it from there from what I understand. Kernel drivers are loaded correctly for both distros.

openSUSE packages xf86-video-fbdev while KaOS packages xf86-video-vesa. I'm not 100% sure, but using fbdev instead, or including that may fix the issue? Have not tested openSUSE with virtualbox. openSUSE at least seems to handle all virtual video devices fine with UEFI.

UEFI is now supported in virtualbox. Starting with kernel 4.16.8 & virtualbox 5.12.2.
