Kernal panic - not syncing during Sophos UTM 9.6 installation

Installing UTM 9.605, during the installing packages phase (step 4 of 6) I get the following error:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt

Installing onto a Qotom Q355G4 if that helps.

  • I was able to get past the error by pressing F3 at the first installation prompt to open the troubleshooting suggestions and entering the following kernel options:

    boot: default nolapic noapic

    After that the installation completed without error

  • In reply to Chris Purves:

    Hi Chris and welcome to the UTM Community!
