I am having a problem booting RHEL 6 Beta in VMware Server 1.0.10 My Host OS is Windows XP Pro SP2.

When I try to boot linux, I get this on screen:

Loading vmlinuz................................ Loading initrd.img...................................... ........................................................ ........................................................ ........................................................ ...................ready. Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... ok

And it appears to hang.

I tried passing edd=off parameter to kernel by editing the kernel boot line in GRUB, but it doesn't work.

Thanks, Anil

Is this a bug with VMware Server 1.X? – anilmwr Sep 24 '10 at 11:08
