Cloudera Quickstart VM not installing

New Contributor

I am new to Cloudera and tried to download the Cloudera Quickstart VM and when I run it in the Virtual Box it shows following error:

Detected CPU family 6 model 78

Unssuported hardware Device: Intel CPU Model bug :8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC
Kernel panic- not syncing :IO-APIC  + timer doesn't work


I have Intel i5 with 8 gb ram.


Can anyone please help ?

What is the version of RHEL/CentOS?
Try removing the kernel quiet parameter in /etc/grub.conf
Memory looks okay for Quicstart though the higher the better


This message occurs when kickstarting a RHEL you need to provide another "vmlinuz" and "initrd.img" to kickstart the machine.
In case for example of kickstarting RHEL x.3, I simply used the vmlinuz and initrd.img from RHEL x.4. higher version
For "mp-BIOS bug :8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC"There is a kernel workaround, I believe booting with the kernel parameter "noapic" could work
