Re: [acrn-dev] [acrn-users] ACRN on non-NUC platforms

Hello Victor,

>>Your machine is fine.
>>Please replace your /usr/bin/cpuid to a higher version.
Tried running from inside 18.04.3 on the same machine and getting the below error ...

ubuntu@ubuntu:/mnt/home/rajagopal/Workspace/ges/acrn-hypervisor$ sudo python3 misc/acrn-config/target/ zenbook
rdmsr: open: No such file or directory
Error:MSR 0x1ad not support in this platform!

I understand that a certain MSR is NOT present in my CPU.
Is that the end of road for ACRN on this machine ?

Where can I find information on why ACRN places such h/w constraints compared to other Type-1 hypervisors (Xen etc)?

Again, looking forward to your reply.

Hello Victor,

While setting up configuration for my target machine, I am running into this error 

rajagopal@rajagopal-UX310UA:~/Workspace/ges/acrn-hypervisor/misc/acrn-config/target$ sudo python3 zenbook
Need CPUID version >= 20170122

FYI, PFA o/p of cat /proc/cpuinfo.
Is there a way I can run ACRN on this or need to give up on this machine ?

Any help/direction would be appreciated.

Hello All,

I have a Core-i7(6500U) based laptop which supports h/w virtualization.

Wondering if ACRN can run on that or has any technical restrictions in running on platforms other than the ones in the supported h/w list ?

Any would help to get started on ACRN would be appreciated.
