Why would something simple:

DSolve[{Derivative[2][x][t] == (-Subscript[\[Omega], 0]^2)*
x[t], x[0] == x0, Derivative[1][x][0] == v0}, x,

Fail with:

RowBox[{\(DSolve::"bvfail"\), \(\(:\)\(\ \)\), "\<\"For some branches of
the general solution, unable to solve
the conditions. \\!\\(\\*ButtonBox[\\\"More
