    I have *.vmx file, can be opened VMware free trail. But after import to parallel desktop 8 for Mac (at Mac os 10.8.4), I saw the below messages, continuing forever.

    "nmi received for unknown reason 21
    Do you have a strange power saving mode enabled? Dazed and confused, but trying to continue."

    Any suggestion? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for helping. But the problem remains after change acpi=off

    GNU GRUB
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-194.17.4.e15 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet divider=10 acpi=force
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-194.17.4.e15.img

    What else can I do?

    I see ACPI being forced in the boot (shouldn't be there?).

    You may try disabling show battery status in virtual machine in the VM configuration.

    You may also play with some boot flags like "devices.apic.disable":

    Thanks. I tried set acpi off, and devices.apic.disable=1. Then I saw a different screen. More suggestions?

    No. There's something up with the boot process and power, that's all I know, probably something to do with some specific optimization for VMWare, if you could open the image in VMWare player and uninstall everything vmware related before importing to Parallels that would be better.

    Also, you should post this in the Linux subforum instead of general questions.
