Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458842
Kernel Panic upon an attempted DVD boot in Virtual Box
Last modified: 2008-10-22 15:56:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Upon trying to boot the Alpha 10 DVD in virtual box I get a kernel panic saying that the kernel is unable to sync.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install and setup Virtual Box
2.Make a Fedora machine with 512mb of ram and 128 mb of video memory
3.Boot the machine from the DVD and get the error
Kernel Panic installation never boots into anaconda
Smooth boot into Annaconda and be able to install the Alpha as planned
This error was present from within a Virtual Machine and not an actual partition so I am not sure if this error is present in a native install.
According to http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog this should be fixed in VirtualBox 2.0.2 (released 2008-09-12). Please add another comment if you're still having problems.
