I have found a work around, but it is not very elegant: Just followed the first solution from here: If you have access to the original host then find and copy the Virtual Machine .xml file to the local folder that contains the .exp file. (The names will be the same other than the .xml or .exp file extension.) Delete the .exp file and then try the import ...

As per the VirtualBox manual, you must enable I/O APIC to be able to assign multiple virtual CPUs. You also need to make sure VT-x is enabled for that particular guest under the System→Acceleration tab. It is not enough to just enable VT-x on the host. You also won't be able to edit the CPU count while the VM is running or has a saved state. Make sure ...

You can remove the internal battery that is on the motherboard, wait 1 minute, then put it back in, but that would probably require taking most of the laptop apart. That is the only way to remove the password. Otherwise, you would need a new motherboard. Hope this helps!

Short answer: Yes Long Answer: What you are looking for are private addresses, due to this section of your question " connect them with SSH and install web servers on them, but I don't have available IP addresses" http://whatismyipaddress.com/private-ip is a good explanation. If you wish your machines to talk to each other they need to be on a network ...

After re-installing OS, playing with BIOS, trying all possible solution on the internet I finally found it: http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php/690662-AMD-FX-series-and-Hyper-V. The issue was with my CPU + OS. I just needed to install this patch ...

An ISO Image is simply a file version of a CD or DVD ROM. To use this with VMware workstation you need to select to first boot from CD-ROM as it defaults to hard disk and network boot first. The simplest solution is to follow the Wizard in VMware workstation selecting Typical and the using the Installer disc image (iso) option to point to the located of ...

It turns out that with a prebuilt virtual machine, on VMWare Workstation, I just imported it and it worked perfectly. I am having WiFi issues, but that's a different question.

I can give some advice for oracle's virtualbox, but not vmware since I haven't used it. So, in the download should be a virtual hard drive file. Open up the peripheral manager CD's, hard drives, etc. Make a new virtual hard drive, or, if one already exists, use that one. Change the mounted medium to the virtual hard drive that you downloaded. Hope ...

What you're asking for is called nested virtualization. Unfortunately, Virtualbox does not support it right now. You can follow the feature-request on the Virtualbox ticket here. The "HardwareVirtEx*" configurations you are looking at refer to the top level Virtualbox installation and if it can use the hardware virtualization features of the CPU. My ...

Finally found a useful article, and managed to fix the various problems so I'll document them here for others. My machine had a 500GB SSD with Windows 7 Pro installed. Installed a new 1TB SSD as the primary disk and installed Windows 10 Pro. Added the Hyper-V client, and then converted the old SSD disk to a .VHD file. Problem When I tried to run the VHD ...

The answer is: it depends whether you are using OpenVPN in the bridged or routed mode: you have a routed OpenVPN if your new virtual interface is tunX, a bridged OpenVPN if, instead, you have a tapX virtual interface. For bridged OpenVPN: select, in the VirtualBox screen, Network-> Bridged Adapter, Name -> tap0. For routed Openvpn: select, in the ...

In 2007 Intel and AMD created Intel VT-x and AMD-V to support native mode virtualisation. Prior to this all virtualisation in the x86 architecture had been done in userspace The user space models created a virtual ring 0 for the guest to run in. This was very computationally expensive. With hardware assisted virtualisation this could not be directly ...

No migration necessary, simply copy over the whole folder for each VM and open the .vmx

Avast 2015 with its option "Enable hardware-assisted virtualization" was the root cause of the fact that VT-x was disabled in Windows 7 for me ;-P Disable it and restart fixed my trouble.

Windows 10 license terms state that one needs 1 license for each VM and 1 license for each physical machine (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Useterms/Retail/Windows/10/UseTerms_Retail_Windows_10_English.htm). Prior to Windows 10 though, the restriction was that you could have up to 4 VM's on a licensed hardware machine sharing the license with the hardware ...

This seems to depend on whether you are using a retail or volume license. As it is not clear from the question, I am going to cover both. Microsoft have published an official guide (Licensing Windows desktop operating system for use with virtual machines) that suggests with Windows Software Assurance or Windows VDA Licensing you can run up to 4 copies of a ...

No, you can't use your licensed copy of Windows 10 in a physical machine and a virtualized one at the same time. Microsoft Windows 10 Use Terms Take a look to this part: a. License. The software is licensed, not sold. Under this agreement, we grant you the right to install and run one instance of the software on your device (the licensed device), ...

You don't license Windows per person, you license it per machine, so no, you cannot do that.

The best way to ensure all traffic is routed through your VPN would be to run a VPN client inside the virtual machine. If you're running an OpenVPN client in the VM, you can set the push "redirect-gateway" option in your configuration to ensure all client traffic is directed through the VPN. If the server connection is lost, all client requests should then ...

Sounds like you are looking for a "bridged" rather than a NAT virtual interface. This way you can bind the virtual interface (meaning the interface for communication between your Mac host and the Windows guest) to only one specific interface of the host. As far as I understand the question, you have a VPN interface set up on the host, right? For details see ...

Disclaimer: I've never used Virtualbox so this might not be possible. Option 1 Bind the network adapter of the Windows Machine to the openvpn interface. Option 2 Slightly more complicated, create a network infront of the Windows box, and use a small Openvpn router on linux then set up iptables to only allow Windows to use the openvpn interface. There ...

As of now, only VMDK supports splitting. It is proprietary. There is a limited workaround: With Microsoft Windows and Linux versions that do support spanned volumes, you can create multiple virtual hard disks and have the operating system span a logical volume across them. The limitation of this workaround is lies in the operating system's limitation of ...

These files are for a VMware virtual machine. While you might be able to get it to run with VirtualBox (with the method LPChip mentioned and some additional configuration), the emulated hardware won’t be exactly the same. This is especially true for storage controllers other than SATA. However, if there’s no .vmx file, the main configuration is missing.

After you have installed VirtualBox, just doubleclick the vdmk file to import that virtual machine.

You should check the intel website to see if your processor supports VT-X/ Hyper-V If Intel says it has VT-X... try upgrading the BIOS/enable it.

It's becoming possible to share a GPU between guest OSes on modern Intel Platforms (Haswell and later) using XenGT (Intel GVT-g). For AMD, as I understand this, it's possible only for a limited number of dedicated server GPUs.

Yes, you can run a virtual machine in a virtual machine. What I did was get a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 computer, run the same OS on the virtual machine, then run a 32 bit version (it couldn't handle 64 bit on the 3rd layer) on the 3rd layer. It was pretty laggy but i managed to get to the new york times on internet explorer with it. This may be difficult if ...

Booting a Windows system on a machine which is different than the one it was installed on is not a good idea: First, it kills the activation. Second, it might not boot because the chipset is different and the drivers might crash. Third, if it boots, it will reinstall most system drivers, which might make it fail on the real machine. So: Yes, it is possible ...

I had the same issue while running VMPlayer on Ubuntu 15.04. My virtual machine was set to NAT, and though I could determine its ip address by logging into the gui and running ifconfig in the VM, I could't ping or ssh into it. Turns out when VMPlayer installed, it didn't enable dhcp on the vmnet1 and vmnet8 adaptor. Solution was to use the ubuntu gui to ...
