Kernel Panic for Rocky Linux 8

Postby supmethods » 29. Jun 2022, 02:02


I am getting kernel panic when trying to install Rocky Linux 8. CentOS 7 installs without issues.

Host is a Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen 9 running Windows 11 Pro (OS 22000.739) .

Please find the attached screenshot. Thank you.

Try setting the VM to 2 processors if it is not already.

If that doesn't work, right-click the guest in the main Virtualbox window's guest list, choose Show Log.

Search the far left tab's log for this text:

Attempting fall back to NEM

If you find it, Hyper-V is enabled. You have two options:

A: Disable Hyper-V. See HMR3Init: Attempting fall back to NEM (Hyper-V is active).

B: Try the 6.1.35 test build. Save the test build installer until you update again later. You'll need it if your host's MSI installation database goes south (they do) and the installer will not be available for download after the next even-number version gets released.

If you don't find that text, save the far left tab's log, zip the log file, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.
