VMware workstation 11 EFI

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.

VMware workstation 11 EFI

Postby bartvanl » 11 Dec 2014, 14:16

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.
