[Resolved] CentOS 7 stuck at the boot screen!

Postby Realone » 4. Sep 2019, 17:22

Hi everyone,
I'm trying to install CentOS 7 in Windows 10 Educational host but it stuck at the boot screen. It stops at the first page "automatic boot in 60 seconds" or sometimes when I hit Enter it shows a gry page and stops there. Thanks in advance for your help :)

Yep, thought so:
00:00:01.941611 HM: HMR3Init: Attempting fall back to NEM: VT-x is not available
00:00:01.989815 NEM: WHvCapabilityCodeHypervisorPresent is TRUE, so this might work...

It is booting, ought to be at the log-on screen round about the release of WIndows 16, or when the first Mars astronauts land. You might want to get a cup of coffee... In other words, it's running glacially slow. The cause is Microsoft Hyper-V being activated.

See I have a 64bit host, but can't install 64bit guests Carefully go through each command in the 2nd & 3rd posts. Based on my perusal of successful fixes for this problem, the silver bullet appears to be the "bcdedit" command & complete power-down in post 2 point 1.
