Re: How to run acrn on my Intel PC?

You may need to “port” it to your hardware. But in general, this is a Kaby Lake processor and we already use that on the NUCs so we may be able to get this to work without too much effort (famous last words… 😉)


Can you describe in more details what happens after you’ve followed all the instructions in the Getting Started Guide? Any logs/errors that you see on the screen?


One thing I would already do as well is switch to the industrial scenario, that is the one we have focused most of our efforts on over the last year (since the 1.0 release). So I’d recommend building ACRN using “make BOARD=nuc7i7dnb SCENARIO=industry”.


Give us more information about your system too, e.g.:
* Memory installed

* ACRN and kernel version you are using

And anything else you believe may be relevant.

Subject: [acrn-users] How to run acrn on my Intel PC?


Hi, all.

I have a PC which have Intel i3-7100 CPU and MSI B250M MORTAR main board.

I want to run acrn on my PC, I follow acrn Getting Started document, and build the SDC scenario on the nuc7i7dnb (make all BOARD_FILE=$PWD/misc/vm_configs/xmls/board-xmls/nuc7i7dnb.xml SCENARIO_FILE=$PWD/misc/vm_configs/xmls/config-xmls/nuc7i7dnb/sdc.xml), but acrn can't boot to SOS (ubuntu 20.04).

I want to know how to run acrn on my PC? Do I need to port it to my hardware?
