When boot sysresccd in VMware workstation 11 bios, all works well. But when i boot in efi mode, grub gets loaded and i choose an entry with keyboard. No matter what i select, the kernel boots fine, but when the command-line prompts, the guest hangs. Keyboard and mouse are not responding. However the cursor at the prompt is blinking.
When i check windows task manager, the vmx process is using no cpu, and Only 23M RAM. No disk nor network activity. Ssh and ping don´t respond.
it also happens with centos. I´m using VMware workstation 11 on a windows 8.1 pro 64 bit host. cpu is a intel i5 4570 with 16 GB RAM. I did verify checksum on iso and VMware installer.
Questions about problems with your hardware. For example, if you the kernel hangs during boot because of an hardware failure or if you have a problem with a driver not working or missing.
