Cannot install Linux host on this hardware AMD Phenom 9500 + Asus M2N MX SE plus

Reported by: barf Owned by:

Guest type: other Host type: other


I have VBox installed on Fedora 8 and running Win XP as the guest. I recently created a new VM and tried to install Centos as a guest and it would not install I then tried a copy of fedora and it stopped just after CPU detection with 'SMP motherboard not detected', I then tried XP which installed with out any problems. Just to check it was wasn't me or the media I installed VBox on an AMD Athalon box with Fedora 8 as Host and I was able to install both Centos and Fedora 7 as Guests.

There's a bug in the linux kernel that prevents it from correctly recognizing the APIC on barcelona level AMD cpus (family 0x10). Enable the IO-APIC setting for the VM to work around it.
