[SOLVED] VirtualBox 4.1 funny wizard help

Postby abcuser » 29. Jul 2011, 12:19

I have had a laugh seeing this wizard window. There is detailed explaining done what does "Back", "Next" and "Cancel" button do - like help for idiots, but on the other hand there is absolutely no help for "Reinitialize the MAC address of all network cards". May I ask what is this check option for? Any help would be nice. ;)

if you reinitialize the MAC address you may get windows activation trouble, or have to reconfigure the (e.g. linux) guest network settings
if you don't you can't run the original and the clone in the same network

Thanks a lot for explaining. It would be nice if some of your explaining is actually written on wizard itself. 8)
