Hi, I just wanted to test Kerio Operator - I donwloaded the VMware version, and created a VM in virtualBox 5. I used "Linux other 64bit", 1024MB, 2 CPU-cores, KVM.

When booting, it hangs with 100% CPU, saying "Starting Kerio OS" - now for over 1 hour. Is this a known problem / do I need to make any adjustments?

I also tried Oracle 64bit and others.

If I choose "safe" from the Kerio boot menu, I get:

Starting Kerio OS...

ALERT! 'UUID:67aaab3c-f1de-45c0-82ec-4b2c191326ea' does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

And there I am, at the shell... :-/

Looks like something with the disk is not ok?

Any ideas?

IO-APIC seems to be the evil, under Mainboard.
Disabled it and now the problem has gone!

Operator is a 32-bit system, so you should select "Other Linux 32-bit". Then in Settings->Processor you need to enable PAE.

I use virtualbox all the time and it works very well.

Thank you Filip!

I remember that I have also tried 32-bit, but that did not help until I switched off IO-APIC.
Maybe it is a bit special here because my host is a Fujitsu MX 130 mini server with an AMD Athlon CPU ?

Thanks for clearing the bit-ness for me (I already thought that 64 bit would be a waste in this case).

BTW. to my surprise, vBox automatically suggests "Oracle Linux" as soon as you type "Kerio Operator" in the "machine name" field -- quite magic, isnt it? Smile
The defaults that result from this appear to work except for the IO-APIC thing...
