Debian Installation :: Persistent Install In Virtualbox

Jun 28, 2011

So i installed debian squeeze in virtualbox with xfce and i thought that it was persistent. when i powered down the virtual machine and started it up again later I only had the option of installing it again. Do i use save state to keep it in the installed stage? would i have to do that each time i made a change? i want to make sure so that i don't keep having to re install it.

Debian :: Install On VirtualBox Running On Mac Server

Jun 15, 2011

I am running virtualbox on a Mac Mini Server. I would like to install Debian on it and give it an internal static IP address. E.g.

I am looking at all the downloads. The Mac Mini Server Snow Leopard has no CD/DVD but plenty of disk space.

It will be used as a LAMP webserver, Java, Ghostscript and pdftk but also install ISPConfig on it.

I was looking at this ISO: [URL] Is this ok?

The Mac is a 64 bit Intel based machine. If I wanted 64 bit on the VirtualBox, which 64 bit ISO should I get?

Debian Installation :: Installing 6.x Into VirtualBox 4 With Ext4?

May 30, 2011

I'm not sure if this is a Debian question or a VirtualBox question, so I'm posing here and will likely pose it on the VBox forums as well.When I install Debian into a new VirtualBox VM, it always installs Ext3 as the file system. I've tried the Advanced installer, but there does not seem to be a way to specify Ext4 as the file system.My questions are:- Is Ext3 the default for Debian 6?- Can I specify Ext4 as the file system at install? Should I even care? I know Ext4 is faster, but would that performance boost be meaningful for a laptop/cloud user?I know I can convert from an Ext3 to Ext4, but that's clearly a lot more work than just installing it during initial setup.VirtualBox does support Ext4, as I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 with Ext4 and it boots and operates fine.

Installation :: Fedora 14 Won't Install In VirtualBox / Why Is So?

Feb 10, 2011

I am trying to take a look at Fedora for the 1st time and usually like to have a good tryout of a distro in VirtualBox.

Firstly, the live cd image boots up fine and seems to work ok except for a Kernel crash at the beginning of the gnome session, but it does enable basic usage within the live system.

But, when trying to do an actual hd install (still within VBox) Fedora 14 just keeps on crashing the VBox??, every install attempt just aborts, I have given the virtual machine a 20gb virtual hd, 2gb ram, 128mb video ram and have not applied any "unusual" extra settings. All versions of Ubuntu, Mint and PCLinuxOS work flawlessly within VBox.

Has anyone else tried installing into VirtualBox here?? (not just running the live environment)

I've wasted a good few hours with this, is it just that some distros dont like VirtualBox or is this indicative of what Fedora would be like on a real non virtual install??

ps, I have the latest VirtualBox fully updated and a flawless host (Mint 9), and perhaps I should add that I'm not a Linux expert and have only been using Linux for just under a year now.

Debian Installation :: Installing Jessie In Virtualbox Fails

I'm just trying to install a Jessie i386 image in Oracle Virtualbox.

My host specs are:
Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Wheezy is installing correctly, but Jessie is not. It fails during the partitioning of the disk, and gives an error message like: unable to write to disk, start = 236342 length = 0. This is not the exact message but I'm unable to try again at the moment.

When I install Wheezy and apt-get update / upgrade to Jessie, I get a black screen after reboot..

Debian Installation :: Daily Netinst Iso Can't Be Read For Boot On Virtualbox

Sep 17, 2010

I am trying to build a test VM with VirtualBox 3.2.8, hosted on Ubuntu 10.04 amd64. I am trying to install Debian Squeeze from the daily build (specifically, from the following URL):


(I've also tried the netinst ISO in the same directory.) The sha1sums are correct for each image.

When I start the VM, it refuses to boot, giving me the message "FATAL: No bootable medium found! System halted."

I would like to note that I've used VirtualBox for several years now, and GNU/Linux since 1995. So I have some experience in the field. (Of course experience is not much guard against brown-bag mistakes.) I've tried this same VM with an Ubuntu ISO (simply switching the attached ISO in the config), and it boots and installs OK.

Is there a known problem with the daily builds vs. VirtualBox?

Fedora Installation :: Install F13 In Virtual Machine Within Virtualbox / But Its Not Working

Jun 28, 2010

My laptop is running Linux Mint 9 and I am trying to install Fedora 13 in a virtual machine within Virtualbox. However, it's not working. It takes forever to get past the initial white/blue loading bar when it first boots and then it just goes white, so I can't see anything. I've already tried modifying the bootline parameter of the live CD to include noprobe, noacpi, noapic, nousb, and nofirewire. However, the result is the same. Am I missing something? Is it possible to install this?

Debian :: Virtualbox: Will Not Boot From Iso

Nov 26, 2010

I first had Virtualbox installed in Lenny, before I dist-upgraded to Squeeze some time ago. After the upgrade, however, I can no longer boot iso images from the hard drive in Virtualbox. For instance, I tried booting a Debian Lenny netinstall iso and the Squeeze beta iso, and had the same problem with both of them. They both hung with a black screen and a "_" in the top left corner.

The old virtual hard drives boot without a problem. I only have a problem with booting iso files from the psysical hard drive.
