[SOLVED] VirtualBox-ose error message during OS boot
I installed Ubuntu-server 7.10 on my virtual machine last night (VirtualBox-ose). The install went fine. After the LiveCD was removed from the cd tray, I booted into Ubuntu-server via my virtual machine normally; or at least I tried to. I got a Panic error that said:
Panic: CPU too old for this Kernel
I am still doing more research while stuck at school. Any input from any of you would be much appreciated.
For an explanation of what what a PAE Kernel is, see here.

Will a moderator please insert [SOLVED] into the thread title, please? Thank you.
Here is how to solve this problem:
1) boot from the Ubuntu-server LiveCD and select "Rescue a Computer" from the GRUB menu.
2) Run through the CLI installer/recovery mode process and follow any and all instructions on screen.
3) when prompted to, select the option to run a shell on a partition. Mine was /mnt/sda1
4) You'll drop down into a command prompt. Execute this command:
apt-get install linux-generic
