Description of problem:
After successfully completing the installation of FC4, the Virtual PC reboots to perform the initial login and finish the configuration. During the boot process, the VPC crashes with "An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered. The PC will restart now." message just as soon as the "Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel." text appears on the VPC screen.
checking vpc.visualwin.com I see that installing FC4 on Microsoft VPC for Mac is a very mixed bag with more failures than successes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Microsoft VPC 7.02 on Mac OS/X 10.4 system
2.Install FC4 on a VPC
3.Reboot after the install finishes...
Actual Results: The VPC crashed with an unrecoverable processor error
Expected Results: The VPC would have booted up the kernel and finished the system configuration.
I am running Microsoft Virtual PC 7.02 on a 2GHz iMac G5 with 2GB of memory running OS/X 10.4.2. It is using LDAP authentication against my Fedora Core 4 file/ldap/dns/http server for the house.
From what little data we've managed to extract, this is a VPC bug.
