vbox 2.0.2 unable to create 64-bit guest on opensuse 11 x64 => Upgrade ASUS BIOS
|Reported by:||suchi||Owned by:|
upgraded to vbox 2.02 on opensuse 11 x64 host. unable to create 64-bit guest vms, vbox sees my proc only as i586.
proc is virt-capable amd phenom 8450 3-core & bios has amd-v enabled.
here is a sample vbox guest settings list:
General Name Ubuntu-8.04.1-LTS-x64 OS Type Ubuntu Base Memory 1024 MB Video Memory 128 MB Boot Order CD/DVD-ROM, Hard Disk ACPI Enabled IO APIC Enabled VT-x/AMD-V Enabled PAE/NX Enabled
Hard Disks IDE Primary Master Enterprise Linux.vdi [Normal, 10.00 GB] CD/DVD-ROM Host Drive ASUS DRW-1814BL (/dev/sr0) Floppy Not mounted Audio Host Driver PulseAudio Controller ICH AC97
Network Adapter 1 Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (NAT) Adapter 2 Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (NAT)
Serial Ports Port 1 COM1, Disconnected USB Device Filters 0 (0 active) Shared Folders 2 Remote Display Disabled
have tried to install following guests on opensuse 11 x64 with vbox 2.0.2: linux 64: ubuntu hardy, rpath foresight, debian lenny, sles 10 unix 64: solaris 10, freebsd 7, nexenta b86 solaris installs 32-bit by default and rest say they need a 64-bit cpu but find only a i586 under vbox.
all above install individually without problems on physical partitions on same m/c, but then i will have a multiboot m/c rather then concurrent vms on one host... doesn't serve my purpose...
have also tried same vbox2.0.2 binary on ubuntu hardy x64, same prob there with vbox, so it seems to be a vbox bug thingie...
have even uninstalled vbox binary entirely and recompiled afresh from source, but problem persists...
- Summary changed from vbox 2.0.2 unable to create 64-bit guest on opensuse 11 x64 to vbox 2.0.2 unable to create 64-bit guest on opensuse 11 x64 => Check BIOS settings
