I have the same problem on a Intel CoreDue laptop and joyride 2141 build 
version.
I try to use VMWare 1.4 and VirtualBox also. In both configuration the kernel 
not boot 'cause the is no 3dnow feature on CPU.
I try to use all the preconfigured setting present on grub menu.

Can anyone give me a suggestion other than recompile the kernel from scratch?

Regards, Torello.
