I have generated an OS using the Yocto Project, with Linux kernel version 3.14. I have tried several methods to boot this OS from VMware Fusion, all with seemingly-identical results, where the process hangs after
Switched to clocksource refined-jiffies. I have removed the VM's USB controller. Here's the relevant part of the message log that I see:
Waiting for root device /dev/hda2... Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = 863336102 ns) Switched to clocksource refined-jiffies
How can it be fixed?
