Error message

Description of problem:

I've installed last ROSA Desktop 2012 (in VirtualBox v.4.2.4; hard drive was initialized automatically) and rebooted and forgot to eject DVD disk. System booted to syslinux menu. I've tried to boot through Troubleshoting -> Boot from the first hard drive and could not do it (see error on the attached screenshot).


How reproducible:
Always. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ROSA Desktop 2012 RC in VirtualBox.  
2. Try to boot with the help of  "Troubleshoting -> Boot from the first hard drive"

Can you please help me a bit.
On local boot option in troubleshooting press tab and change 0xffff to 0x80 and then enter.
It worked for me, if it also works for you  - i can fix this immediately.

In fact it should be. Int 18 error. You have the Virtual machine has NO access to the BIOS to 18 interrupt control to be transferred to your local (natural) drive. If you run in normal mode, then everything will work.

I can say that there is not any problem with 0x80 option in vmware and qemu, also as with 0xffff.
Comment 4 Konstantin Vlasov 2012-12-13 19:54:31 MSK
The value has been changed to 0x80 in the latest ISOs. For instance, it can be verified here:
