Unsupported configuration: host doesn't support invariant TSC


Hello everyone,

I just installed a fresh CentOS 7 minimal version on my server (dell r610)

Linux testServer 3.10.0-229.1.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Mar 27 03:04:26 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

then update it and installed kvm tools

yum -y install qemu-kvm qemu-img libvirt virt-install libvirt-daemon-driver-*

indent preformatted text by 4 spaces Name : qemu-kvm

Arch : x86_64
Epoch : 10
Version : 1.5.3
Release : 86.el7_1.1
Name : virt-install
Arch : noarch
Version : 1.1.0
Release : 12.el7

I got an error when I’m using the virt-install command with “–cpu host” option:

virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n archlinux -r 1024 --cpu host --vcpus=1 --disk path=archlinux.raw,bus=virtio --cdrom archlinux-2015.02.01-dual.iso --os-type linux --network bridge:virbr0,model=virtio --hvm --graphics vnc,listen=

Starting install…

ERROR    unsupported configuration: host doesn't support
  invariant TSC

Domain installation does not appear to have been successful.

If it was, you can restart your domain by running:

  virsh --connect qemu:///system start archlinux

otherwise, please restart your installation.

I’ve double check the Virtualization option in the BIOS is enabled.

Here is a summary of /proc/cpuinfo:

processor       : 0
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel

I’d like to know if there is a way to fix this or not.

If you need more informations, just ask.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
