comment Make a bootable usb to install Windows XP from Linux
Hi, I'm trying to do this very thing on Ubuntu 12.04 but I'm having problems. When I write VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename ~/hdd.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sdx being x my hdd I get this message. VBoxManage: error: Cannot open the raw disk '/dev/sda1': VERR_ACCESS_DENIED VBoxManage: error: The raw disk vmdk file was not created Then I did it as root but, although obviously worked, I only can open the hdd.vmdk as root and that makes me uncomfortable. Nevertheless the virtual machine doesn't seem to work. I get a black screen opening virtualbox as root.
