    Default MS VS 2K3 STD Opensuse 11

    Hi.

    I am trying to install opensuse 11 in my experimental area where all my servers run on a Microsoft Virtual Server 2003 STD platform. The ISO is connected as a DVD drive to the virtual machine and I also tried with a dvd in the dvd rom drive of the host machine. It boots up to the first menu where i select "installation". It then gives a message "Starting... loading limux kernel" and the progress bar runs through. Then it resets the virtual machine and goes back to the menu.

    Any assistance in this regards would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Morne

    Simple solution: Use VMware.

    MS VS is good at running Windows in a virtualized environment and that's about it.

    Hi.
    Thanks for the reply. VMWare does work but I do not want to change my whole environment for one operating system.

    I have now tried it on virtual pc 2007 as well and the same thing happens. This time I received an error stating "An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered. The virtual machine will reset now"

    Perhaps adding noreplace-paravirt to grub will help.

    When booting the LiveCD/DVD/ISO, you are greeted with a screen that says Installation etc. In this screen you can simply type text - add that as a parameter and press enter.

    After installation and on the first boot you'll have to use that parameter as well - you'll need to add it later on as a permanent option to grub so you don't have to type it at every startup.

    Thanks Chrysantine. That worked fine. Now just to figure out how to make it permanent. I am new at linux and chose opensuse to start learning about it.

    edit /boot/grub/menu.lst as super user

    add that to the boot line for the suse boot - default suse is usually the top section.

    make a backup of the file first

    As Caf suggested or the alternative GUI way would be:

    YAST -> System -> Boot Loader -> choose openSUSE 11.0 & Edit -> add noreplace-paravirt to Optional Kernel Command Line Parameter at the end seperated by a space from the others then OK and Finish.
