Virtual Box Guru Meditation Critical Error

Postby asab » 1. Oct 2018, 22:00

Hello,

I have been trying to launch my Minix Virtual Image on the VirtualBox, but I continually get the Guru Meditation critical error upon booting up.
I have attached the log file to help give a better indication of what the issue is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

VirtualBox VM 5.2.10_Ubuntu r121806 linux.amd64 (Jun 15 2018 16:14:07) release log
It looks like you're using the distro's fork version of VirtualBox. You can either ask in their forums for help, or completely remove/uninstall/delete/purge their version and install the official version from the Linux Downloads section of VirtualBox.

Please read the tooltip over the Chipset (hover over it for a second or two) and then change it back to the default PIIX3.

I have Installed the official version of VirtualBox Now.
Please read the tooltip over the Chipset (hover over it for a second or two) and then change it back to the default PIIX3.

Sorry, I forgot to inform I am trying to install MacOS, the tooltip says ICH9 is required for MAC OS X. I have changed it to PIIX3, but still not working.

I am attaching the new log.

Thanks.

You know what else is actually required to run an OSX guest? Genuine Apple hardware! I should have noticed it from the first time...

OSX guests are only supported on Apple hardware (which you do not have). See: Important notice regarding Mac OS X as Guest.

Moving to "OSX Guests" from "Linux Hosts".


PS. Why does no one search these days? Is it actually faster to go through the Oracle registration process? Jeez... :roll:
