    Question Virtualbox installation 8.04 crashes

    [ 15.621716] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

    Im'running Virtualbox on Ubuntu 8.04 host and that's what I get trying to install the very same version as a guest on a virtual machine!

    I tried it on virtualbox with a win XP host too... same result

    Note: I've had no problems installing 8.10 or Windows XP guests... any ideas what is going wrong with Ubuntu 8.04?

    I am running version 3.0.6 and had the same problem.

    I went under "system" settings and clicked on both
    ACPI options. I believe that was it, altho I did turn
    on more of the CPU settings too.

    good luck

    Thanks, yes Enabling the ACPI and IO APCI on the virtual box motherboard solves the problem.

    Processor PAE/NX was not necessary and neither were the processor acceleration options. The later would seem a good idea if the host processor supports them.

    Thanks for solving this problem for me and sorry I didn't respond sooner.

    Thanks. I downloaded Ubuntu 8,04 to install it on Virtualbox in order to learn with a tutorial. It works.
