Guru Meditation on 2000 builds from 1946 to 2091

Post by PCMaster »

Can you give some advice how to fix the Guru Meditation error while booting from CD? I tried to change my VM settings to turn off the ACPI (via VBoxManage), change BIOS date, but it didn't work! I'm currently using VirtualBox 7.0.16.
Thanks!

You need to put Windows NT 4.0 as the operating system configuration you're going to install on builds like these in VirtualBox, rather than 2000. That should get rid of the Guru Meditation error and then these builds should work fine.
