I am trying to check if the OS has booted up successfully in Oracle Virtual BOX using Virtual Box api . Out of the Virtual Box API functions, i found that GetGuestEnteredACPIMode is the one that returns True if the OS is running successfully and returns False if the OS fails to boot with errors like BSOD "7B". etc., The other function get_State retuns state as running even if the machine fails to boot with BSOD(Blue screen of Death) Typically 7B in my case.

IF any one have suggestion on checking if the system booted up successfully in VirtualBox API com c++ is appreciated.

How about checking the return result from a COM call?
This page:
seems to indicate that you could check to see that the return value isn't VBOX_E_HOST_ERROR (Host operating system related error.)
Only used VirtualBox manually, never touched it's API. Perhaps this suggestion stinks!

@ enhzflep that does not seem to help.
