Oracle VMWare Linux on AMD Ryzen installation error
I have an AMD Ryzen 5 2600 and i'm trying to install oracle linux (firstly 7.6, then 8.0) on an Oracle VM VirtualBox.
I've downloaded Oracle Linux 7.6 from the official website (edelivery.oracle.com), this version: V980739-01. But, when i tried to install it in the virtual machine, after chosing install, the virtualbox froze. I tried to do some settings in the Graphics section of the VirtualBox but nothing helped. Source
Then, i thought it was a problem with this version of linux, so i've downloaded Linux 8.0 from the same website and then, instead of getting frozen, i've got this error from the VirtualBox:
This kernel requires an x84-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU.
This processor is not supported in this version of RHEL.
I think that this was also the problem with the previous generation (7.6) which i tried to install, but instead of giving me this error, it just froze.
I know that my Ryzen is a 64 bit processor. What is the problem then? What version of linux should i try to download? In the download page, I have to choose between
Linux ARM 64-bit
x86 64 bit
I've chosen x86 64 bit and then I had to choose between
Oracle Container Services for use with Kubernetes 18.104.22.168, 633.2 MB
Oracle Linux Release 7 Update 6 Boot ISO image for x86 (64 bit), 578.0 MB
Oracle Linux Release 7 Update 6 UEK Boot ISO image for x86 (64 bit), 606.0 MB
Oracle Linux Release 7 Update 6 source DVD 1, 3.5 GB
Oracle Linux Release 7 Update 6 source DVD 2, 4.4 GB
Oracle Linux Release 7 Update 6 for x86 (64 bit), 4.3 GB
Oracle VirtIO Drivers Version for Microsoft Windows 1.1.4, 68.0 MB
And I chose the Oracle Linux Release 7 Update 6 for x86 (64 bit), 4.3 GB which is this version I mentioned: V980739-01.
I've done the same installation on an Intel 6700 processor and everything worked well. So i'm guessing it has something to do with the AMD processor.
