Default Bug#463606: Linux 2.6.24 fails to boot on MS Virtual PC 2007

Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-686
Version: 2.6.24-2

This image is failing to boot on my Virtual PC 2007. I will attach a
screen capture, and also a best-effort transcription.

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.

BUG: Int 6: CR2 00000000

The screen capture contains a grey blip in the bottom left corner.
This actually contains two blinking characters in bright white. The
characters appear to be ASCII 144 (0x90).

I'm not passing any strange parameters to the kernel, just "root=/dev/hda2 ro".

I tried reinstalling; it didn't help. Let me know what else I should try.

Linux 2.6.22 and 2.6.23 work fine on the same VM. (With the exception
of bug 433815, of course.)
