Please see  Unable to install RHEL9 on VirtualBox, especially the part regarding the POPCNT CPU capability.

TL;DR: VBoxManage setextradata "VM name" "VBoxInternal/CPUM/IsaExts/POPCNT" "1"

Background rationale: Some Linux distributions (e.g. RHEL 9) are being built for the x86-64-v2 microarchitecture level and probably require the POPCNT instruction. VirtualBox in VT-x mode provides POPCNT to the guest, but VirtualBox in NEM (Hyper-V) does not, probably leading to a Linux kernel panic in Linux guest VMs.

  • Summary changed from Getting end kernel panic when trying to install a VM with RHEL 9.x iso to Getting end kernel panic when trying to install a VM with RHEL 9.x iso => fixed in SVN/nxt 6.1.x maintenance

Will be fixed in the next 6.1.x maintenance release. This happens only when Hyper-V is used. This also doesn't happen on 7.0 regardless of the underlying hypervisor.

Hello,

We just released VirtualBox 6.1.42. This issue should be fixed in this version. You can download it from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds_6_1.
