Description (last modified by frank) (diff)


I'm trying to netinstall a vm using Virtualbox-ose 2.2.2. The machine uses:

ACPI: Enabled IO APIC: Enabled VT-x: Enabled Nested Paging: Enabled PAE/NX: enabled IDE Controller type: PIIX4 or ICH6 Network adapter type: PCnet-FAST III or PCnet-FAST II Adapter attached to: bridge adapter (eth0)

When booting, it looks for dhcp, get an IP (and a “next server” stuff), start downloading PXE image, and then the vm hangs, showing a window with “critical error has occurred” and the logs show:

PCNet#0: Init: ss32=1 GCRDRA=-x-befd460[4] GCTDRA=0xbefd440[1] (CSR0_MISS disabled)

Guru Meditation -4014 (VERR_VMX_INVALID_GUEST_STATE)

If I disable VT-x, machine boots the same, correctly downloads the image and goes to the OSChooser. I then select the image (Windows) I want to install, and it reboots, as if it didn't loaded the image to jump on.

It's a private internal network so the logs aren't easily available, but if you need more info please ask.
