On a Mac, is there a way to mount the image downloaded from Ubuntu and install Ubuntu on VirtualBox?

I could download that image and burn it to a CD-R or DVD-R if at home using a PC, but I am at work and only have a Mac (and don't have blank DVD-Rs)

You don't have to burn it: just use the VirtualBox device manager and select "mount image"; then you choose the ISO and you're done.

Virtual Device Manager - Ctrl+D

  • Nice with screenshots. Could've switched to english locale before taking them, but nevermind. Now, perhaps Jian Lin is missing the installation procedure explanation... Lots of screenshots to provide ;-) – Andreas Aug 17 '10 at 21:43
