Installing VirtualBox inside a virtual machine?

Postby DaveHCYJ » 26. May 2010, 21:34

Is it possible to install VirtualBox inside a virtual machine?

Ultimately I would like this sort of setup: A windows virtual machine running inside of linux. Where that linux install is really just another virtual machine running inside windows.

Of course I can go through the exercise of jut trying to do it an see what happens, but I figured I'd ask first.

If there is an issue with installing VirtualBox inside a VirtualBox vm, I could use a VMware product as the outer level vm with virtualbox running on the inner level.
