[Solved] Getting critical error when trying to start El Capitan appliance.

Postby nservidio » 4. Apr 2018, 05:47

This is my first post on this forum, so please forgive me if I haven't provided enough info.

I created a virtual machine on Computer A:

MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015)
macOS High Sierra
Version 10.13.3 Beta (17D29a)
VirtualBox 5.2.4 r119785

The guest OS is:
OS X El Capitan
Version 10.11.6

I created a snapshot on Computer A.
Then I exported an appliance from Computer A.
Then I imported the appliance on Computer B:

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
macOS High Sierra
Version 10.13.3
VirtualBox 5.2.4 r119785

Then I try to start the vm with "Normal Start".
Then I get a critical error.
I've attached a log.

Thank you very much for any assistance!

The info you provided is fine, unfortunately the error you are getting is a triple fault, which are almost impossible to diagnose.

I would start by simplifying: I don't understand why you created a snapshot, or why you are using export/import to copy a VirtualBox VM between like hosts. I would not use snapshots, and I would use the VM copy procedure described in: Howto: Move a VM.

Than you very much mpak! I will check out that tutorial. Just curious, I looked through the VBox.log, but couldn't really see where the issue was. Would you mind posting the line where the actual error occurs? Thanks again!

Search for the word "Guru" in the log. That's the beginning of the error report.

Awesome thanks!

I was able to get the VM working on my other computer with Howto: Move a VM.

I ran into one other issue following that tutorial. I had to eject the Mac OS X install disk from the VM before I was able to:

use the GUI's Machine|Add menu item to register the .vbox file (found in the VM folder) from its new location.


Thanks again!
