OSX Server won't boot after installation

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Hello ! I have MacOSX Server 10.6 64bit host running on XServe. It hosts MacOSX Server 10.6 both 32 and 64 bit 1-processor guests. While installing and running 32bit guest gives no problems, the 64bit won't boot after the final restart after the installation. I am able to boot installer from .iso then install the guest without any problems, then enter serial number and do all other initial config stuff, then the normal OSX UI appears I am able to do anything I want up until first restart, after which the OSX won't boot. The same pattern appears to be consistent along 3 tries of new machine->install->reboot.

Attached are the screenshot with the failure, vbox.log and xml host system description generated by the System Profiler.

Try temporarily setting the virtual machine to:

  • operating system: other
  • version: other/unknown

Start the VM, expect the OS to not start. Power off the machine.

Revert the settings to:

  • operating system: Mac OS X
  • version: Mac OS X Server

Start the VM, see whether the changes to settings worked around the issue.

If not worked around in that way, consider setting aside AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement.kext (! pictured in the screenshot of the kernel panic). In a discussion re: CPU usage, there's  a suggestion that this particular .kext may be optional in this type of guest VM environment.
