Ticket #8718 (closed defect: duplicate)
CentOS 5.6 x86_64 guest installation crashes 32bit Windows 7 Enterprise Host
|Reported by:||jandd||Owned by:|
I tried to install a CentOS 5.6 x86_64 on a freshly installed VirtualBox 4.0.4. I tried it as both "RedHat (64 bit)" as CentOS is a RedHat derivative and "Linux 2.6 (64 bit)". Both variants lead to a crash and reboot of the Host Windows 7 Enterprise OS (32 Bit). Due to the reboot I were not able to gather more information about the crash.
The virtual machine was configured to use 512 MiB of RAM, 1 CPU and a NATed network interface. I tried to use the text mode installation.
The host Machine is a Lenovo Thinkpad W510, Intel VT is enabled.
I used the CentOS 5.6 CD ISO images as installation media. I tried several combinations of IO-APIC, nested Pages and PAE flags without success.
The same set of installation ISO images lead to a working VM using VMWare Player.
