    When I start to install a virtual OS (Linux), this pops up:

    An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered.
    The virtual machine will now restart

    Anything I can do?

  2. You can try turning off hardware virtualization in the vm settings, but I
    doubt it will help. That's a pretty fatal error. What Linux distribution
    is it?

    Recent Linux kernels (those in Ubuntu 8.04 but not 7.x, Fedora 9 but not 8.
    maybe others too) exhibit such a problem. If this is your case, try kernel
    option "noreplace-paravirt".

    Yes, append "noreplace-paravirt" to the Linux boot command. From the Linux
    boot manager GRUB, hit "tab" to show the boot parameter line. Or, when
    looking at the countdown-to-boot time, hit any key and type "a" to alter the
    same boot parameter line.
