Ubuntu: VMWare player is crashing the whole OS


I am using ubuntu 12.04 (with latest updates) on Lenovo Thinkpad T430. Both OS and machine are 64 bits and I got crashes when try to use vmware player to create a VM.

I have install vmware player 64 bit from the official site successfully but when I start to create a vm the whole machines restarts

Any one know the issue ?



I also encountered this issue. My setup:

  • Lenovo T430s
  • Ubuntu 12.04
  • BIOS Ver. G7ET60WW (2.02)

Whenever I tried to open a VM using either VMware Player/WorkStation as well as Virtual box running on Ubuntu 12.04, the machine would immediately re-boot.

What worked for me:

In the BIOS there is a Security tab and within that there is a Virtualization section. It has two options

  • Intel Virtualization Technology
  • Intel VT-d Feature

Both options were disabled on my machine. I enabled both of them. Saved the new BIOS setting and re-started the machine and I was able to boot and create VM's using the above.

Try that and see if it works...
