Repeatable Guru Meditation when booting a Gentoo install ISO

Reported by: MarcoMolteni Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.12 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Mac OS X

Description

Host Mac OS X 10.7.5, MacBook Pro.

This Guru Meditation is 100% repeatable.

Create a new VM with default values, type Gentoo_64, pass it a install-ia64-minimal-2013xxx.iso for Gentoo Linux (instructions to find the ISO at  http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ia64.xml?part=1&chap=2#doc_chap2), start the VM. Crash.

The crash happens at least with VB 4.2.10 and 4.2.12. The crash happens with at least all the Gentoo install ISO from March and April 2013. If I pass another bootable ISO, Ubuntu for example, the VM boots fine and I can install the guest :-)

As an additional data point, I tried booting a Gentoo i386 ISO and it works fine, so the Guru Meditation happens only with Gentoo 64-bit.

You are trying to boot the wrong installation CD: Don't use IA64 but use AMD64 architecture!

Replying to frank:

*blush* Thanks! Sometimes you need somebody else to point you to the obvious :-)
