    CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system error

      Running VMPlayer version 3.1.3 build-324285 on Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit with 8G memory.

      When I try to install certain Linux-based VMs from ISOs, within few seconds, I get the error:

      "The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. You need to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point."

      (Also see screenshot attached)

       

      This doesn't happen on other Linux/Windows-based ISOs though. I've Googled the web & VMTN, but haven't found a relevant

      answer to my issue.

       

      Thanks in advance
