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.

Thanks,

It worked fine with FreeNAS-i386-LiveCD-0.7.1.5127.iso

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.
