VirtualBox 2.0.2 64-bit guest OS not working

Reported by: talling Owned by:

Cc: talling@… Guest type: Linux
Host type: Solaris


Supposedly with virtualbox 2.0 support for 64-bit guest OS was added, however every Linux 64-bit distro I try won't get past the CPU test. Here's the error message I get from my last test of Ubuntu desktop:

"This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i1586 CPU." others 64-bit OS I've tried with similar error messages include. RHEL 3,4,5 64-bit OS, and the original RHEL WS 3 that came with my SUN W2100z, which also doesn't work with virtualbox. I've had load directly on this system RHEL WS 3 and RHEL 4 as native OS ok. I've read a lot which talked about VT-x/AMD-V support within your BIOS. But at this point everything loads just find natively, just not in virualbox, which leads me to think it's still not working in virtualbox. Any ideas what needs to be down to get it to work? Thanks

Please attach the VBox.log file to this defect. It is most likely that your VT-x/AMD-V support is disabled in the BIOS. We can verify this when looking at the log file.

Besides not be able to install any x64 OS, I've tried Solaris 10 X86 x64, and several linux distros with the same issue. In the log I also see in the attached log an issue with the keyboard I'm using with is a standard Sun keyboard. PC Version part# X3731A, thanks for looking into this.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Your CPU does not support AMD-V or you have not enabled it in the BIOS. This is a requirement for running 64 bits guests as clearly stated in the manual.
