Unable to boot using VirtualBox on amd64

Daniel Serodio's picture

I can't boot any TurnKey appliances on my amd64 notebook, I get a kernel panic. Both Ubuntu Server 32-bit and 64-bit work fine on the same VitualBox VM.

Any ideas to what may the problema may be?

 

TIA,

Daniel Serodio

This is discussed in the Appliance installation tutorial with VirtualBox:
Note for users with AMD CPUs: if you have an AMD Phenom or Barcelona-level
Opteron CPU enable IO APIC here to work around a Linux kernel bug.
Hope this helps.

Thank you, that did the trick. The network doesn't work, but that's another problem.
