Install Win10 x64 via Virtual Machine Manager v2.3.0-8722

Recommended Posts

Hello there.

 

I am trying to install Windows 10 x64 via Virtual Machine Manager v2.3.0-8722 (latest). I create the VM, the installation image starts, I can set-up the needed steps to select locale, disk location and copy Windows files, but after the "Finishing up" bla, bla and restart, I get the attached screen in the noVNC browser window. And that's all, no progress. In VMM, it appears "Running", but 0 CPU usage and no IP. If I refresh the page, it returns the "Failed to connect to server" red overlay  in the upper part, and no image.

 

I even tried a Kali image and on both "Install" and "Live run" I get errors (see the second attached screenshot).

 

I must mention that I am using the latest loader, running on DS3615xs with DSM 6.1.6-15266 Update 1. The machine is a HP XW4600 workstation.

 

Please help me out, any ideas are welcome.

 

Thank you in advance,

a7r

Heya. Unfortunately I haven't found a solution yet, It's becoming really annoying. I haven't tried a XP version of Windows, just 10. What hardware set-up do you have? Same HP workstation? I'm thinking that the problem comes from the BIOS or other backround thingy, even though I altered all the possible settings I have found related to virtualization and no go.

Update vm manager to latest version change bios setting to uefi and re install windows 10 

No longer hangs at booting from disk ...

Yeah, tested it and now it boots fine. Thank you again for the tip.

 

I see they've made some changes, including the adding of UEFI option and an open-source BIOS, so I think there were some issues on the original track.

One problem though - the Windows 10 (x64) 1803 VM is really slow, topping at 90-100 % CPU load almost anytime. From the booting process to the OS GUI, everything is really choked (even when I passed through the OS installation process). Tried with 2 procs, 4 procs, 2, 4 and 6 gigs of RAM. The RAM consumption iseems to be in the normal threshold, but the CPU is/looks overloaded.

Do you have any ideas of what might be done in order for the VM to run in normal conditions? Does it happens to anyone else? Thank you in advance.
