Ubuntu VDI for Mac OS X host?

Postby hydraconsole » 14. Feb 2009, 07:01

I have dual boot Mac OS X and Ubuntu Hardy.

I have a vdi I created for the Ubuntu host. Can I use that machine on the Mac OS X host?

Dual Boot Partition

I'm not positive, but I think you can. I remember reading that some of the vm programs let you use an existing windows/linux partition.

Try this:

1) start vb
2) click on new button
3) follow wizard and see if the wizard lets you point to the ubuntu partition.


Good luck!

Yes, just make sure that the VM that you create has the same setting as the old one.
