I had an Ubuntu LAMP set up in a virtual machine in Virtual Box.

Reformatted my drive.

Went to install a new LAMP Virtual Machine, now I'm getting this error message after grub:

The kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU: 0:6
Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU

Nothing has changed. Still an i386 virtual machine, still the same 8.04 i386 iso. What am I missing here?

bump...

Maybe I should have posted in virtualization? Could a mod maybe move the thread?

EDIT: Ok, no responses, and no response to the request to move the thread. Please excuse the double post, I've reposted this in Virtualization. RESPOND ONLY TO THE NEW THREAD: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6294705#post6294705

I ran into this error when trying to boot ubuntu server 8.04 from a Sun xVM instance (VirtualBox). I'm running VirtualBox 2.1, and in order to get ubuntu to boot properly, I had to edit the properties of the VM instance to "Enable PAE/NX". Once I did that, ubuntu server 8.04 booted without a hitch.

Just thought I'd post this solution here in case anyone else ran into this issue and needed a fix.
