Does it work if Windows is installed inside virtual box of Ubuntu and on an external USB hard drive?
My laptop is Lenovo T400. I am using Ubuntu 12.04, and would like to install SAS 9.3 (its system requirement is here). But I can't find or purchase SAS linux version for Ubuntu. So I guess I have to install SAS under Windows.
Also on my internal hard drive of my laptop, the partition with the most free space has about 23 GB. I am wondering how much space is needed to install Windows 7 and SAS 9.3 under the virtual box of Ubuntu 12.04?
If the space of my internal hard drive is not enough, is it okay to install them on an external USB hard drive? Will that be inconvenient and slow to run Windows 7 and SAS 9.3 under the virtual box from the external hard darive?
Thanks and regards!
