Getting Ubuntu JeOS To Work In VMware Player June 17, 2009

Currently Ubuntu JeOS is not supported to work in VMware Player. If you try to run a VM that contains Ubuntu JeOS you will get this error on startup:

Starting up ...
This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU:
Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.

The workaround for this can be found here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-jeos/+bug/185205

Basically you need to boot from the CD on startup and install the linux-generic kernel
