A critical error has occured while running the virtual machine

Reported by: RobbertsQuestion Owned by:
Component: VM control Version: VirtualBox 4.3.14
Keywords: Error Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X


Hello guys,

I'm new with VirtualBox and I've downloaded it because I would like to install Linux Kali. I've done the right staps but when I want to start Kali it says; 'A critical error has occurred while running the virtual machine and the machine execution has been stopped.'.

I would like to copy and past my logfile over here but I can't do that.

I hope you guys can help me.

A Dutchman,

Quote from the log file:

"The guest is trying to switch to the PAE mode which is currently disabled by default in VirtualBox. PAE support can be enabled using the VM settings (System/Processor)"

Enable PAE and try again.

Support questions really should go to though.
