I have a very fresh Windows 7 machine with intel Core i5 3750 processor and Gigabyte B75M-D3H M/B mother board, RAM is 8GB.
I have VMware Workstation 7.1.3. Installation of VMware workstation was successful. When tried creating a new VM of Ubuntu 12.04, i got following error::
"The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. You will need to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point."
I am facing a similar problem in my Lenovo Laptop with Core i5 3rd Gen processor 3230M, OS: Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit. I have tried installing Fedora 17 with both VMware Player and workstation, every time i am getting the same error. Please help on urgent basis
