I have recently purchased CML personal and am really struggling to get this up and running on my system using VMWare Workstation.
OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version: 10.0.19045 Build 19045 System Type: x64-based PC Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core Processor, 3801 Mhz, 8 Core(s), 16 Logical Processor(s) BIOS Version: American Megatrends Inc. 4403, 27/04/2022 SMBIOS Version 3.3 BIOS Mode: UEFI
Installed Physical Memory (RAM): 32.0 GB Total Physical Memory: 31.9 GB Available Physical Memory: 19.2 GB Total Virtual Memory: 36.7 GB Available Virtual Memory: 18.7 GB
A couple of things to mention:
I have been in the BIOS and enabled SVM which I understand to be required for virtualization on AMD.
I have completed all Windows Updates (including optional)
I have completed a BIOS update to the latest version
I am running the latest version of VMWare Workstation
I have downloaded the files for CML directed from Cisco
Attempting to run the system with Virtualized AMD-V/RVI gives a support error for the platform and does not power on within VMWare Workstation (see screenshot).
Removing this option, results in the system booting to the CML boot screen, however there is then a firmware bug that appears, followed by a failure for CML initial configuration initialization (see screenshot), after which it boots to login screen (see screenshot).
I have looked up these errors online and do not appear to be the only one having them, however am unable to find any solutions for this at all.
