I have installed virtual box 4.1.14 r77440 on my host, a MacBook Pro 2.2 GHz Intel Core Duo, 4 GB ram, running snow leopard Mac OS X 10.6.8.
I have installed BackTrack Linux 5 R2 32 Bit as a guest OS on Virtual Box. I am now trying to install Guest Additions on the Virtual Box host, but I am getting a strange error:
Unable to mount the CD/DVD image /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso on the machine BackTrack. Would you like to force mounting of this medium?
Could not mount the media/drive '/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso' (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED).
Here are the setting for the Guest machine:
VT-x/AMD-V, Nested Paging, PAE/NX
Remote Desktop Server:
IDE Primary Master (CD/DVD):
BT5R2-KDE-32.iso (2.61 GB)
IDE Primary Slave (CD/DVD):
VBoxGuestAdditions.iso (48.43 MB)
SATA Port 0:
BackTrack.vdi (Normal, 25.00 GB)
I keep the BackTrack.vdi and BT5R2-KDE-32.iso files on a USB, and so the virtual machine guest files reside on this USB. I copied VBoxGuestAdditions.iso from:
to a directory on my hard drive, and I added it as a CD to the storage on my Guest machine. I can access it in the Guest OS and I did run the file:
And it seems to have run successfully. But I still don’t seem to have guest additions installed. I also can’t run the runasroot.sh and autorun.sh commands from the konsole. For the former, I get the following error:
…no su(l)-like tool is available.
I have spent ages on Google trying to solve this, to no avail. Can anyone help? Many thanks!
