Kali Linux Virtualbox Mac Os X Lion freeze after initial ramdisk

Postby Novian » 26. Nov 2021, 08:32

Hi everybody

I've been imported the Kali, I've reinstalled everything from the beginning too, and the end of the problem is always the same, it always freezes after loading the initial ramdisk with a freeze white line. anyone know where the problem is?

By the way, Im using old macbook mid 2007, mac os 10.7.5 (Lion)
The last version of the VB for my mac is only 4.0


Thanks

I'm not a Mac guru in any way, but how do you know that 4.0 is the latest you can run?

Start the VM from full power off, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Please right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip the log file, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

VirtualBox User Manual 5.0.40 states in section 1.4 Supported host operating systems:

Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and earlier was removed with VirtualBox 5.0.

In consequence, the limit is VirtualBox 4.3.40 or earlier.

I see from the oracle VM website download, they said 4.0 is the version for mac os 10.7. And when i try to install VM 5.0 version, there is a pop up said if the installer is not compatible for my version of mac.

And for the log file, i will send it soon. thanks

OK, this one looks like it's going to be too old a computer. The VM guru-meditated over VERR_PGM_INVALID_CR3_ADDR. Web-searching "VERR_PGM_INVALID_CR3_ADDR site:forums.virtualbox.org" leads to

which say this is because the physical CPU does not support nested paging, which in the log is off, and the required fix is to run a 5.1.x or 5.2.x version, not certain of the last number x. If you can't run 5.1 or 5.2 then you are not able to run this VM. You may have to stick with older VM OS's that don't require nested paging.
