CentOS 5.4 Install Hangs

Reported by: aaronfaby Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 3.1.0 Keywords: centos install hang
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Mac OS X



Xserve Dual Quad Core 2.26 Ghz Nehalem CPU (8 cores) 16GB RAM 2TB RAID 10 Virtual Box 3.1.0 Snow Leopard 10.6.2 OS, 64 bit kernel

Guest OS: CentOS 5.4

I cannot get CentOS to install. I run through the process, but when it gets to the part where it formats the file system, it will stop at a random percentage. It stopped once at 22%, once at 40% and once at 23%. I can leave it there for a while and it never completes.

I have VT-x, IO APIC, and Nested Paging turned on. I've tried with PAE both on an off with no luck. Attached is the VBox.log.

Follow Up:

My initial install attempts were using 2 cores and 4 GB of RAM. I just tried again with only 1 CPU core and only 2 GB of RAM and now it worked.

If you need another VBox.log with the lower RAM and CPU core settings, let me know.
