Description of problem:
I was able to successfully run the installer (from the Fedora 3 CD-ROM from the January 2005 Linux Magazine) on my Macintosh running Virtual PC 6.1, but when it reboots, it crashes Virtual PC with a message "An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered.".  The last message in the PC window was:

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install
2. Reboot or start up fresh

Actual Results:  Crash as reported above.

Expected Results:  System should have started.

This is down to Virtual PC being unable to handle a 4G/4G kernel. I believe the
work around is to install an i586 kernel. This is probably a dup of bug #136018
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-01-01 14:26:28 EST
latest testing kernels have 4g/4g disabled.
Likewise, FC4 has removed this patch.
