Kernel Panic when trying to install Alma Linux 9

Post by Vika »

Hello,
I'm facing a kernel panic when i try to install Alma Linux 9.0 via the file AlmaLinux-9.0-x86_64-dvd.iso, I tried to search before posting, but i can't find the solution.
Here's the screenshots and the log of the VM, and I'm working with VBox 6.1.38 r153438.

If you're using a Windows host, double-check to make sure that Hyper-V is completely disabled. I had a similar kernel panic with an Oracle Linux 9 guest. Oracle Linux 9 is very closely related to Alma Linux 9. I can run Oracle Linux 8 guests with Hyper-V enabled, but not Oracle Linux 9 guests.

I hope this helps.

The log shows that NEM (Hyper-v) is disabled, so not an issue here.

On the other hand, I do not recommend assigning 100% of available CPU cores to guest code. Note btw that VirtualBox is a host app, not guest code, so starving it of CPU will not be helpful. I would reduce CPU cores to 2 in the VM settings.

Beyond that, note that Windows 7 has not been a supported host for quite some time now.

Please try if the following command helps:

Code: Select all

cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox"
VBoxManage setextradata "Alma Linux" "VBoxInternal/CPUM/IsaExts/POPCNT" "1"
