FreeNAS on VMware

Hi experts,

I'm trying to install FreeNAS as a virtual machine on VMware Workstation 7. When I launch the VM, it boots correctly from the ISO CD (FreeNAS-i386-LiveCD-0.7.2.5266.iso), I select the option to boot in verbose mode and it remains stuck at one point, displaying many lines like these:
t_delta 16.0108d032cb334b60 too long
t_delta 15.f58306afb53419a0 too short
t_delta 16.010a762538a38680 too long

It's been running now for more than 1 hour and it still adds one of these lines every 10 seconds or so.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Jay

hi,

few reasons that might cause this.....

while creating a new VM you have not chosen freebsd as the OS which might have added unsupported devices.

Create a new VM and before you start the install remove all other devices like USB,floppy & sound card

then perform the install.

One more thing is to try with the stable install as 5266 is a experimental release.

post me back..as i speak i am trying out the stable install on vmwks 7 and will post back.

Hi,

I tried without the devices and it's the same... downloading the stable version now and will try later.

hi,

couple of reasons why this might have not worked are...

1. The CPU sync
2. The memory type

will try out with 5266 and keep you posted.

created the partitions and reboot and i am up and running
