Sure. Most virtual machine tools work with disk images, not actual disks, and they'll let you create an image for the Win98 VM anywhere you want. I've run VMs off pendrives, and even off network shares over WiFi. (For the same reason, I'm guessing you don't actually need the external hard drive, since there's no need to create partitions, and the disk ...

VMWare provides, not surprisingly, a built in tool for this, vmrun. It's under /Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmrun although it has moved around in other Fusion releases a bit. 🍺 vmrun list Total running VMs: 1 .docker/machine/machines/myvm.vmx 🍺 vmrun getGuestIPAddress ~/.docker/machine/machines/myvm.vmx 172.16.213.128

I have exactly the same issue. I have three sound devices on my system, Intel HD sound on the motherboard, AC 97 add on module, and Nvidia HDMI from the Nvidia graphics card. I have sound enabled in Virtual Box, and I see three devices in Virtual Box, Intel Sound, Ac 97 and Soundblaster 16. And so I assume, not tested yet, that my motherboard sound ...

Parallels can use a Boot Camp Windows install as a virtual OS inside OS X - so long as you shut it down rather than suspend, when you've finished; otherwise it won't boot from Boot Camp next time.

I can only speak for VirtualBox but I assume the following answers are also valid for other virtualisation applications. You already mentioned the two options you have: NAT or Network Bridge. With NAT, the two VPN connections stack. The Guest (VM) won't receive an IP by your LAN DHCP server but use the Host as a gateway. Therefore the Guest even ...

This is what worked for me: I created a new virtual machine (using VirtualBox) with the same Ubuntu version as the one that crashed. Then using WinSCP I downloaded the corrupted VM (i.e. VDI file) locally on my machine and mounted it as a drive on the newly created VM. Then I just copied the initrd.img files to root directory of the corrupted VM and it ...

OK, thanks to several folks on this and other forums, I found the answer. The key is to know the file system type of the partition of interest. The lsblk command shows where the (name:broken) volume is mounted. The mount command with no parameters provides the required information about file system type, which is ext4 in this case. Note that several ...

You are not giving us much info to work with, but I'm almost sure you have to enable CPU virtualization features in your BIOS/UEFI setup. Also, there are a lot of good answers here.

By "Virtual optical disk file" it means an .iso image – a complete copy of a CD's or DVD's contents. (That is, not just the files, but also the complete structure.) In other words, you created a blank VM, and now it's asking you to insert an installation disc so that you could install Windows (or Linux, or…) on it. If you have an actual CD with Windows on ...

Instead of loading the isos into a virtual drive and trying to boot from that, have you tried just pointing the VirtualBox boot device to the iso file? AskUbuntu has the steps for that

First open YOURMACHINE.vbox in editor (Notepad++) and find "Machine uuid=" copy that Machine uuid to C:\Users\[user]\.VirtualBox\VirtualBox.xml find <MachineRegistry> and add line Machine entry, it should look like this <MachineRegistry> <MachineEntry uuid="{YOURMACHINE_UUID}" src="[PATH-TO-YOUR-MACHINE]\YOURMACHINE.vbox"/> ...

You cannot SSH to machine, that cannot boot. In no way. You have to ask someone with physical access to machine (hypervisor management console in your case) to fix the problem. For removing old kernels under Ubuntu you should use apt-get autoremove.

The initrd.img files contain all the drivers required to boot your VM. That means it probably can't boot to the point where the network is up, let alone sshd. You'll need to get console access and (virtual) CD access, and boot from an ISO file. Or else roll back to a snapshot before you deleted the files from /boot. You shouldn't delete files from /boot ...

Short answer : Yes it is an ok idea to have a VM on a flash disk but there are better alternatives. From looking at the specs of the flash disk it'll be fine Write speeds for a 3.71gb file were 70mb/s on this disk. From my experience with flash disk it should last atleast a year. Unless you really want to do serious heavy duty stuff Long answer: Using a ...

I'm assuming that by a non-USB device you mean PCI or PCIExpress device. VirtualBox has experimental support for PCI passthrough via an extension. However, support is only available on Linux hosts and only with certain hardware.

If you haven't already, install Guest Additions. You can download the version-specific one on the VirtualBox website. Which non-USB devices you want to mount?

I've created a Ubuntu 14.04 VM and found exactly your observations, though in my case I was using Ubuntu as host. It appeared that installing vmtools made no difference to the VM, unlike in Windows, where a new graphics driver was installed. It seems that the link you cite refers to much earlier versions of Ubuntu. I then found this link, which confirms ...

Found the solution to use the PPTP connection with the VM at https://www.centos.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=26810 What I had been missing when I tried to connect within the VM: 2.3 If /sbin/route shows that there is default route for current network connection, we have to add another default route for ppp0 to be able to use the vpn. This is because ...

Whether this is legal or not depends on the terms of the Microsoft End User License Agreement (EULA) applicable to your Windows license. We cannot answer this question for you, however you can easily find the answer by visiting Microsoft's Licensing Terms website to find and download the correct EULA. It will clearly state how many installations you are ...

This message has nothing to do with your VM's HDD, and is showing because your host machine doesn't have enough disk space remaining. ...the disk on which the virtual machine is stored is almost full. (Emphasis mine). You need to free up some space on your Mac's drive in order for the VM to continue.

The basic math stems from that Visual Studio on the host requiring 1GB includes 0.5GB for Windows and 0.5GB for Visual Studio. In a VM you have 0.5GB for host Windows 0.5GB for virtual Windows and 0.5GB for Visual Studio. Those are minimums. I personally would not recommend running either Windows or Visual Studio without at least double those numbers in ...

All shares are protected by the host shares them let that be real or virtual, and nothing happens to them as long as the host protects them. You cannot remove a shared resource just by removing a client by disconnecting it or by destroying it, so yes, rm away.

MUCH, MUCH simpler. 1) move to new location 2) Right-click remove from virtualbox menu 3) Select 'add' from machine menu 4) Find the 8kb Blue icon that has a type of 'virtualbox machine definition' . Select it and it will add to your virtualbox list. double click virtual machine and it works.

The virtualbox additions from the apt repository are not up-to-date. By reinstalling them from the iso provided by virtualbox, this issue was resolved.

It's a matter of balance. The simpler and smaller a hosts footprint is, the safer and probably more efficient and resource-friendly it'll be. For management of a host or cluster of hosts you'll want tools, so you need to add those (assuming the tools are needed before and/or outside of containers) which then bloats the host OS. In short, people have ...

I don't recommend you to waste your time installing that game in a virtual machine or in a 'windows xp mode' one because the performance is going to be very bad compared with a 'host' installation.You won't be happy. A separate clean "windows xp" installation is the best solution, but perhaps it's not an option for you, if you've a laptop. I don't ...

Windows XP Mode could be helpful in this case. it is: a virtual operating system and as a way to open programs within Windows 7. It runs in a separate window on the Windows 7 desktop, much like a program, except it's a fully-functional, fully-licensed version of Windows XP. In Windows XP Mode, you can access your physical computer's CD/DVD drive, ...

I had a similar issue and ended up doing this: Backup the whole VM on the external Hard Drive. That is by simply copying the folder that has all the VHD files to a backup folder along with the VM settings. Delete all the snapshots I didn't want using the Hyper-V Manager. That removed all those snapshot files. Even if you think you may not need the ...

Yes it is possible to configure VPN only in a virtual container. In this case the host will not be using VPN while the virtual container does.

Your Guest OS will not get connected once your host got connected, Unless you have configured your VM's Network settings.

This feature was removed in VMware Workstation 8 (released September 14, 2011). There's http://rr-project.org/ (Linux-only), which provides low-overhead (I believe typically under 1.5x) record/replay, and gdb interface. Mozilla developers now use it to debug intermittent failures in Firefox.

With virtual box you should be able to run many virtual machines on your PC with no licensing. Just make sure you have the visualisation features enabled in the BIOS for your processor.

You didn't say what OS you were running, but there are several tools out there, some restricted and some not, to mount VMDKs. Try googling "mount vmdk". A couple for Windows: http://www.osforensics.com/tools/mount-disk-images.html http://www.softpedia.com/get/Programming/Other-Programming-Files/Vmount-for-VMware.shtml#download

Each interface will be assigned a Mac address that will be visable in both the VMware product you are using (assuming ESXi or Workstation) as well as in the guest OS. Just match them up and you have your interface to vNIC mappings.

In theory, it will run - but it will run extremely poorly. Server Core is a full on Windows Server install - just without the GUI. You still get full functionality of (in your case) DHCP, DNS etc and all thats missing are the point and click elements. Server Core is NOT a cut-down, DOS only type server. In your case, you will be running a full Windows ...

Please keep in mind this is Server Core, not command prompt only system (DOS), 512MB is even lag at sometime in lab environment. If you use that in production, 512MB ram is observably not enough. Besides, if you really want to bypass the minimum hardware requirements during the installation, simplest way is you can install it with 512MB first then adjust ...

I usually install the applications on the host machine, and then work out what kind of settings are needed to get it to run on the guest machine. I manage my setup like that, and simply running a batch file, will install all of the applications in the guest machine. The thing can even be customised so that the guest machines use different drives. I use ...

Your needs can be met by virtualization. In fact, you'll be wondering why you didn't do this earlier. I thought that I might anyways syncronize my virtual machine to get the same image on the different workstations I work on If you put your Virtual Machine on a portable USB hard drive then, yes, you can carry the hard drive around with you and "run" ...

since[at time of answering] nobody has listed any pros pros you could have multiple, easily clone and experiment with them. the hard drive can be set to grow dynamically only using what it needs you can use snapshots, which is quicker than restoring an image you can test out software

Does anyone think, this is not an optimal idea in terms of speed or performance etc.? It's not optimal. A desktop OS will perform substantially better on bare metal than in a Virtual Machine. Graphics and Disk I/O performance tends to suffer the most. Some applications/games that utilize 3D graphics might not even be run or be usable. You WILL notice ...

I managed to fix the corrupt header using Virtual Disk Development Kit from vmware. This post about mounting disk image led me to the vddk. vmware-manager.exe allows you to fix the image file. It worked for me, as I was able to launch the VM, however files I needed were corrupt anyway.

From my own extensive experience virtualizing desktop OS, I can confidently tell you that Ubuntu doesn't virtualize nearly as well as Windows in general OR leaner Linux distros such as Linux Mint Mate. On my end I generally use Linux Mint Mate as my go-to distro for running under VirtualBox or VMWare Workstation (I use both). However, if you want to see ...

I agree with Keltari. I think you are at the point where you have identified the issue, and perhaps it is disk related (as you mentioned the 100% usage) but you still need to do a bit more digging to find the culprit. This will be an exploration to find the issue so it is difficult to provide a step by step for where to go. I recommend reviewing all options ...

I had the same problem in VirtualBox with a Windows 10 Virtual Machine with Guest Additions installed, it (the graphics messing up by displaying black all over) seems to only happen with HTML content (Windows Search, Edge/IE Browser, etc.) when the VM's 2D Acceleration setting is enabled. Follow these steps: Shutdown the VM. Disable the 2D Acceleration ...

The issue is resolved! it was an IP conflict between 2 systems initially! Actually I have setup static IP for 1 of my VM as 192.168.0.103. But I forgot to do IP reservation in my WIFI router. So yesterday when I started my windows system, my router assigned the IP as 192.168.0.103 to my windows system. Then when I tried to start the VM with same IP, there ...

You could try one of the utilities which will wake up your Mac remotely. Once your Mac is awake, the VMs will be running. Here is one I found. (Disclaimer - I have not tried it).

I think your problem is that you're trying to run SheepShaver on Windows 8, but it says on the official SheepShaver website that it does not support Windows versions later than Windows XP. I read Greenonline's answer about SheepShaver which was interesting, however Greenonline was also using Windows XP, which may have been the reason why renaming the ROM as ...
