Thanks, that does help. At least we know it's taking the 32-bit entry

I opened the following bug report to track this issue,


Does vmware display the register contents when it crashes? That info
would be useful to try and diagnose what's going wrong. It's probably
not making the transition to 32-bit mode correctly.

Out of curiosity, what is the kernel version that you're booting?
