For now I used the cmd+maj+é(ö) to get a ~ it's a tilde to put on another letter like "ñ" so you have to enter another thing to make it appear. It works for what I needed to do.

The problem with "spoofing" a powerful GPU is that Windows and applications may try to use the powerful features which, because said features don't actually exist, will cause the whole experiment to fail spectacularly. Having said that, certain hypervisors (for example VirtualBox) support 3D acceleration for certain guest OS', so long as you explicitly ...

First off, you have increased the size of your virtual hard disk, but not the partition. That's why you're still out of space. GUI cannot start, because starting requires some files to be created on disk. The most convenient way to fix this would probably be to boot a GUI-based Linux off an ISO image and free up the disk space using some file manager.

As it turns out, I simply needed to free up some space.

If you're goal is to have TWO DIFFERENT Windows installations, you will need to buy a second license. However, if you are trying to have an installation of Windows you can boot to and use virtually, I you can install Windows via Boot Camp and then use VMWare's Fusion to boot the Boot Camp partition. I personally did this for years but then found that I ...

To clarify, using a virtual machine on its own doesn't necessarily add any security. The best thing security wise about a virtual machine is that it is almost completely separate from the host machine. So if you get a virus on your host computer it probably won't be able to access anything inside the VM, and vice versa. Disk encryption, like apesa suggested, ...

In VirtualBox you have a couple of options in terms of securing your data within a virtual Drive You can encrypt your VM disk inside VirtualBox. You must always shutdown the VM with this option and not use Sleep, Hibernate, etc... You can use a third party encryption tool to encrypt all the VM files Lastly you could encrypt the Host system Disk With all ...

There were a couple of factors to the problems that were preventing the VM loading but thanks to SimonS for helping point me in the right direction to a suitable work-around. Firstly, creating the VM as a Generation 2 proved problematic because the hard-drive could only be attached to a SCSI adapter but this was unable to boot hence why I was getting the ...

Apparently there is currently no way to properly resize a virtual hard disk, only to expand it. So what I did was basically to repartition the virtual hard drive (from inside the VM) so the VM will use only the space I allow it to. Then I wiped the reserve space, and ran vdiskmanager as figgycity50 suggested. In steps: Repartition the virtual HD: Download ...

Thank you for flying xorriso. Without knowing the exact error message i have to guess somewhat. Such a refusal can happen if the resulting ISO image will not fit on your local disk. A run time of 2 hours points towards a directory loop inside ./virtMachineIMG.mount. If this is the case, then programs like "du" and "find" should show strangely repeated ...

This article provides instructions on how to use the vmware-vdiskmanager tool to, among other things, shrink the disk with the -k <diskname> argument. The tool should be included with VMWare Workstation in the C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation directory provided you have not changed the install directory. Therefore, you could open your ...

For VirtualBox, Starting from version 4.0 we are able to limit Virtual Box bandwith for acess to disk images (see Virtual Box Manual for details) We need to create a bandwith group first (in the example below named "Limit" for 20 MB/s): VBoxManage bandwidthctl "VM name" --name Limit --add disk --limit 20 VBoxManage storageattach "VM name" ...

Did you remember to click the "Cable Connected" in Virtualbox?

If Windows Explorer shows that the Disk Image is actually 2MB, you can't do much about it. The data is gone, and it most likely does not have anything to do with VirtualBox. Virtualbox shows No bootable medium found when you boot from a virtual hard drive with, well, no bootable medium. This happens for instance when you remove all data on the disk ...

Not really a solution, but to work around the problem, you have to issue the guest OS Ctrl+Alt+F2 followed by Ctrl+Alt+F7. This will cycle through the TTY and back to X11, therefore restoring resolution to the correct value. In order to issue the Ctrl+Alt+FX combo you should press Host_key+FX. (Host_key is by default mapped to the Right Ctrl key in ...

Docker doesn't run an OS, it runs an application. If you would like to run a complete OS, you need virtualization, not containerization. From what I can understand, what you'd like is a computer that runs several virtual machines, all of which could be accessed remotely. This can be accomplished using VirtualBox or VmWare (other virtualization solutions ...

You can remotely run commands on the VM by enabling telnet server in control panel -> programs -> Install windows features. All traffic in telnet is sent in plain text so its insecure. Setting up a private virtual switch between the host and guest would reduce the security risk.

In other virtualization programs you have the option to export the VM, make an online snapshot and roll forward the export. I do not believe this is possible in Virtual Box.

This article at VMWare support site says: By default, the VMnet0 virtual network is set up in bridged mode and bridges to one of the active Ethernet adapters on the host computer. The choice of which adapter it uses is arbitrary. You can restrict the range of choices using options on the Automatic Bridging tab. Thus, you need to pick your wlan ...

Install Virtualbox. Create a new virtual machine. When it asks to create a hard drive, find the "use existing" option and point it to your existing .vmdk file. You'll have to do a little set-up for memory and the virtual network card, but you can be up and running in very little time.

What I would do in your case would be to click on "Save the machine state" in VirtualBox and then simply copy the whole VM folder to your backup drive. This way, when your laptop is returned to you with Windows 10, you can simply copy the VM folder back again to your VirtualBox VMs folder and then click on the yourVMName.vbox file to import the VM back into ...

You're missing default route for traffic outside the scope of the subnet. Run following command as privileged user: ip route add default via ip-of-router-on-local-network dev enp0s3 This should allow you to ping google's servers and make outside connections. Making this setting permanent (to persist after reboot) will depend on the method your VM ...

This is not possible. Yes, you can save the state of the VM to disk and resume it later, but the upgrade to windows 10 will break it. I speak out of experience. Technically speaking it should be possible to save and resume, but pratically I found out that it won't.

I do not know anything about windows; I do that that if you are running a verified, by md5 checksum (https://getfedora.org/verify), version of Fedora in a VM that you are more likely to be struck by lightning in the same place three times while winning two powerball lotteries concurrently than to have been comprimised that quickly. Also, the KVM aspect of ...

In VitualBox you can scale the display up, this sounds like it could solve your problem. Once the VM is up and running go to the menu at the top and select View. At the bottom of that menu should be a Scale Factor submenu. From there you can select 200%. You might need the Guest Additions installed, I'm not too sure.

There is no specific volume command for a virtual machine. You control the volume in the Guest OS by adjusting the volume as you would do on a normal phyisical machine. Setting this to 100% will make it as loud as the VM is allowed to go, which is always at maximum is going to be the volume you use for your OS. If you use windows as host, and you open the ...

These are the options i could think of: Assuming the Guest OS forwards it's DNS queries to your router and not directly to a remote server. Update settings on your router to resolve www.mylocalsite.com to ip address of your host computer. This is, however, an advance feature that many generic router firmwares don't have. Consult: Can a router map a URL to ...

Your .bat Windows script could run VBoxManage commands to start and stop your Ubuntu VM using the "--type headless" argument. And if you have an SSH client on your Windows box, you could call that from your Windows host to connect to the Ubuntu VM running whatever commands you want.

If you mean by host outside the network The host system (including any attached networks) and the user, then no, they will not be able to access it. Only other VMs on the same host which connect to the same internal network (identified by the same network Name) will be able to access it. If you wish your guest VM to be accessible from the host system ...

Will a host outside the network be able to access the internal network? No. That's the whole point of an internal network. Or will I need another adapter type for that? Yes, that would be the simplest way but another adapter might not be required. Another VM might be configured to do port forwarding, NAT or network routing and then allow remote ...

I had the same problem and my Guest Addition was installed correctly. I read BobT suggestion above and checked my adapter graphic memory and it was using 128 MB. I changed it to 256 MB and everything got fixed. Then changed it back to 128 MB and now everything is fine :) So maybe just a change is need to hint VB graphic adapter. Hope it works :)

You can easily test it by sending a large file from one VM to the other (and make sure you use the right IP's). Most of the ftp traffic will be UDP. UDP overhead is about 6% (if you count both the headers and the acks coming back). If your ftp transfer goes faster than 100Mbps/1.06, then the VM's are communicating faster than the physical device can ...

The VMs' network access is managed on the host through bridging or NATing. It's therefore the host that will direct the traffic to the right place which obviously doesn't need to leave the actual computer (and doesn't). The speed obtained for such transfer will depend on the virtual network adapters used on both machines unless the host's load is so high ...

I had a similar Issue, and ended up solving it with a small trick. Go to control panel-> Network and sharing Select the host-only network connection, and go to properties (not details) You'll notice no default gateway is configured.

The problem is due to the "–" characters which are not ASCII dashes (decimal 45): $ printf "%d\n" "'-" 45 This may happen when you copy commands from e.g. a blog post.

VMware Workstation has a mode for virtual machines called 'Shared'. It allows another instance of Workstation to connect to a host via the network, and effectively take full control over the virtual machines that the server - in this case your windows 10 machine - has shared. This mode was added in Workstation 9; so I would imagine your version is at least ...

Sounds like you need to forward traffic from the host to the guest. I'm not familiar with Vagrant specifically, but this looks like how you'd do it: https://www.vagrantup.com/docs/networking/forwarded_ports.html

I found the way to make it. Windows 95 and 98 cannot run by processors faster than 2.1 GHz. My MacBook Pro's processor runs at 2.2 GHz. That was the reason for it to fail while booting.

I can confirm that @BinaryMisfit is correct on how to disable this.

Update 3: You could try this software: http://www.incentivespro.com/hyper-v-usb.html It has a free trial. Update 2: According to this website: Hyper-V doesn't allow the pass-through of a USB-attached device on a host to a VM. This would break the desired abstraction of the VM from the hardware, and therefore stop VM mobility. however this ...

The simple answer is yes. Virtual box will disconnect the device from the host OSes control and give essentially direct access to the USB device to the guest OS. The net effect is that windows sees the actual hardware device and doesn't know its being passed through another OS, so the native Windows drivers just work
