[Resolved] Debian VM stuck in Guru Meditation

Postby SiRo » 17. Apr 2019, 10:51

Hi,

I'm running VB 6.0.4 on a Win 7 PC. When I want to start my Debian VM it goes straight to Guru Meditation. Please help! Attached are the log files

Thanks

You need to enable VT-x in the motherboard / PC / laptop BIOS. Your Intel Xeon W3530 CPU supports it. See your PC's manufacturer help on how to do this. Also, make sure that nothing else has an exclusive hold on the VT-x.

I'm not sure what you are trying to achieve with this guest but 64MB RAM for a modern Linux installation isn't going to fly. With the RAM you have available you should set this to 1GB or 2GB.

Again, this is very low particularly if you are running a UI. Set this to the max value.
