Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... ok

message and it not booting. Please help me

It might use a serial console. How do you know it doesn't boot? How did you create that VM? What kernel parameters are set in the Grub configuration?

HejaAli 09-01-2020 09:10 AM

1. It's not doing anything it's stuck

2. I downloaded an Arch Linux iso and inserted it in the vm and booted it

3. I don't know

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

I just downloaded an Arch ISO and could successfully boot it from a VirtualBox VM.

When you created the VM did you specify linux and Arch Linux (64 bit) for type and version?

HejaAli 09-01-2020 09:24 AM

I used Arch Linux 64 Bit with the iso archlinux-2020.08.01-x86_64.iso from this mirror http://archlinux.uk.mirror.allworldi...so/2020.08.01/ for UK Arch Linux Users

Note: I do live in the UK

I am running VB 6.1.12 and the same ISO file i.e archlinux-2020.08.01-x86_64.iso

How did you create the virtual machine?

Did you verify the download was good by comparing its md5sums?

HejaAli 09-01-2020 09:48 AM

I used VitrualBox to create the vm.

With these settings:

1GB Memory
8GB Hard Disk Space
1 CPU
I/O APIC Enabled
EFI Not Enabled
Hardware Clock in UTC Time Enabled
ICH9 Chipset
USB Tablet Pointing Device
16MB Video Memory


And with this boot order:

Hard Disk
Optical
Floppy

I also did not verify the download was good by comparing its md5sums.

Just wanted to say i do have another unix device working in real life. It's a Macbook.

I'd do that.

You could also try netboot instead.

With VM version set to Arch Linux (64 bit) the defaults are:

System:
chipset PIIX3
Pointing Device: USB tablet
I/O APIC Enabled
Hardware Clock in UTC Time Enabled

I am using 1024 for base memory.

Display:
16 MB video memory
Graphics controller VMSVGA

Ok, I will try these solutions later. Right now I’m not at home.

HejaAli 09-01-2020 12:02 PM

Ok, Now i am back! I will try your solutions.

HejaAli 09-01-2020 12:08 PM

Change chipset did not work.

I don't know how to verify the download if it's good by comparing it's md5sums.

michaelk 09-01-2020 12:12 PM

What about graphics controller setting?

HejaAli 09-01-2020 12:36 PM

Graphics Controller is VMSVGA
