PAE crash

If Whonix does not start because PAE is missing: Virtual Box -> Right Click on Whonix-Gateway -> Settings -> Processor -> Disable the Enable PAE/NX Box -> OK.

Repeat that for Whonix-Workstation as well.

Read the Boot Options chapter and use the 486 kernel.


If you see "Failed to load unit 'PATM' (VERR_SSM_FIELD_NOT_CONSECUTIVE).", please enable VT-x in BIOS.

Kernel Panic

This probably similar to PAE crash and VERR_SSM_FIELD_NOT_CONSECUTIVE issues above. If you can, enable VT-x in BIOS. If you cannot, then disable PAE/NX in VirtualBox (see PAE crash above for instructions on how to do so) and then read the Boot Options chapter and use the 486 kernel.

VT-x is disabled in the BIOS.

If you see this error message.

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Whonix-Gateway.

VT-x is disabled in the BIOS.

Then please enable VT-x in BIOS.

Otras razones

Please have a look at the Download page. It contains instructions on how to properly download and verify the Whonix virtual machine images. There is also help available in form of screenshot or video instructions.

If you still need help, please go to the Whonix User Help Forum.

Opciones de arranque

In the grub boot menu you can choose for two seconds. Two kernels are installed by default.

  • El núcleo 686-pae predeterminado.
  • Un núcleo 486 para compatibilidad.

If Whonix works out of the box, you do not need to change anything and you can stick to the default 686-pae kernel.

In case you need to disable PAE, use the 486 kernel.
