General :: Ubuntu - Running A Virtual Machine On Windows 7?
Jun 5, 2010
I want to do two things: Set up a virtual machine on Windows 7 to run Ubuntu Set up a way for the virtual machine to read the windows disk or windows to have read/write access to the virtual machine's disk. My goal is to have a place where both Ubuntu and Windows can read and write. What software is good for this task? Are their free programs that can run virtual machines? Also if my machine is running Windows 7 64-bit, can I install Ubuntu 32-bit? Or am I forced to use Ubuntu 64-bit? Or does it not matter?
I'm running a 64bit Version of Windows 7. I'm also dual-booting 64bit Ubuntu 10.04 (if it matters). However, for this I'm trying to get this working on the Windows 7 side of things. I downloaded the BackTrack 5 32bit GNOME .iso file (BT5-GNOME-32.iso) to my USB stick fine and made a VM on VMware Player. I set the OS as "Other Linux 2.6.x kernel" (if it matters). However, when I go to play my VM I get the following screen. I know I'm supposed to type Startx to launch the GUI. However, nothing happens; it's completely unresponsive (and yes keyboard focus is routed to the VM). There is no response, the cursor doesn't even blink.
i just finished successfully installing a virtual machine and windows xp. the windows setup finished no errors, but now when i try to boot up it gives me the blue screen of death (see attachment). after the bsod it just reboots.
note: in the screenshot it doesn't look blue but it is. i couldn't pause it so then it would show blue so it ended up black.
My hostmachine is Windows, and install Ubuntu on a virtual machine. I developed some program on Ubuntu. Suppose I want to transfer these files to a folder in Windows. How to find and get these files, which logically are stored in the virtual machine.
I'm just trying to know if is there is a way to run the first version of linux in a virtual machine. Since I am very new to this, my aim is to learn something basic on how the first version of linux kernel was built and worked.
My goal is to install Windows 7 on a virtual machine running on Ubuntu. The Lenovo machine came with Windows 7 installed, but did not come with a boot disk. What are my options? Should I ask Lenovo for a disk? Will I need to purchase Windows just for the virtual machine?
I have installed Oracle Enterprise Linux Server 5 as host OS and Windows XPP(Guest OS) as virtual Machine by VMWare Player on standalone Desktop PC.Now I want to run all commands of Linux from Windows XPP.How should I proceed?
I have a Win7 deskptop (host) and want to run a linux virtual machine; but I want that linux virtual machine to be able to access a directory on the host machine (in this case, to serve a web directory).
What virtual machine software would you recommend for this?
I'm a web developer and I am building a site on a CMS that has issues moving from a WAMP server to LAMP. The live server is LAMP and I am running Windows 7. I don't want to run into problems moving from the test server to the live server, so I was wondering if I could somehow run Linux using a virtual machine (using Windows Virtual PC which I think supports Linux or VirtualBox) and then using a Linux equivalent of WAMP2 server as a test server. how to do this and what the best Linux distribution to use would be?
I have an Ubuntu Desktop 11.04 virtual machine using VirtualBox on my Windows 7 system.
Up until now I have been doing all my development within the Ubuntu environment but unfortunately, I don't like it. I want to move back to Windows, which is much more familiar to me but I would still like to access the virtual box like a virtual server as it is already set up with Apache, PHP, Pear, Git etc...
How can I make the two work in harmony? I essentially want to be able to start the VM and connect to it as if it was a server machine somewhere on my network, without having to actually buy another machine to put on my network.
I'm installing a new server after this weekend, and it musth have both windows server 2008 r2 and linux (probably ubuntu) running, but I'm wondering which one of them I should run virtual. Windows will be used mostly for rdp and for serving asp.net webpages, linux will host some django-applications and a postgreSQL server etc.
Will there be any issues installing and then subsequently running a Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 installation on a VirtualBox VM on a Linux host (Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit)? I require Windows Server 2008 R2 for a course I'm taking, and I dont have any systems to install/deploy it onto.
Host Machine Specs:
Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit 4GB RAM 350GB Disk Space Nvidia Quadro system
from a local machine i connect to the remote via the terminal:$ ssh -X email@example.com VirtualBoxthe vb dialog box appears with the list of the virtual machines on the left hand side, just as if i was runing it locally, but when i try and start one of the machines it crashes the connection!why dose it crash the connection and what can i do to make this work?
I am getting seriously tired of running MS Office in a virtual machine. It's been about 18 months since I tried running in on Wine, so I just checked out WineHQ and CodeWeavers and apparently usability hasn't improved at all.
I keep trying to use OpenOffice but whenever I open PowerPoint presentations they are always kind of messed up. This week, somebody sent me an MS Word file for printing labels for a mail merge and the label template file opened up blank. Anybody else have any brilliant work arounds or am I still stuck with my MS Office VirtualBox!! It's really hard to believe that its 2011 and Linux is still missing a world-class Office Suite...
I currently run a Windows 7 Compaq laptop with an Athlon x2 and 4gig of DDR2. I want to either set up a dual-boot on my laptop, or make Linux the Primary with Windows running in something like a virtual box. I am very much into Android and I want to learn Linux as a result of that. So which Distro should be considered in a situation like this.
I have 3 boxes running opensuse-11.4 64 bit - Phenom-I 2.6 GHz, Intel Q9400 quad core 2.66 GHz and Intel SU7300 dual core 1.3 GHz (the last one is a laptop). When I run a KVM virtual machine and load it quite a lot all host OS freeze. Interestingly, the laptop works the longest (hours), while the fastest system with Q9400 freezes in max. 10 minutes. After a hard reboot there is nothing in /var/log/messages This bug is 100% reproducible. The guest OS is either RHEL or openSUSE. Is it a 11.4 bug or I am missing something? Have not tried the same hardware with RHEL-6.
I have removed Network Manager Gnome from my Ubuntu which is a virtual machine(Guest OS),I see the internet is no more running inside this Virtual Machine.While in other Virtual Machines (Other Linux) I had not removed Network Manager Gnomeand I see internet is running fine in them.
I am running Windows 7 inside Virtual Machine Manager - running on Cent OS 5.6. My problem is that the Windows 7 'Window', is only about half the size of the screen. Is there any to change the resolution of the OS running inside Virtual Machine Manager?
I have been using 3CX on Vista for 2 years now. I recently upgraded my PC to run Ubuntu 10.4. I installed Sun's VirtualBox and set up a virtual machine within which I run Windows 7. I then installed the latest version of 3CX in this virtual machine/Windows7 environment and used the back up config to setup the new 3CX system. It works great, but for one thing.... When voice mail messages are left by callers, it does not seem to exist. The message is not in the users account, and is not sent by eMail as a wav file as it used to

How I can install Windows on my Virtual Xen Machine on my Debian Lenny HETZNER EQ4 Server. I've found a old Tutorial but I don't understand it. I would like to ask you how I install Windows from a ISO. Image as a Guest on my Debian Host.
I need to run Windows XP on a virtual machine using my 64 bit Slackware -current box. Does anyone have a procedure for installing the non-free version of Virtualbox (USB support is a necessity), or failing that can anyone recommend another solution? The only virtualization software I've ever run has been Virtualbox.
