how do I start a virtualbox image automatically at startup?
What VM are you trying to start... VM name?
I used to do this with the command VBoxManage startvm WinXP
on an older version of VB. The command may still work in a script placed in your startup directory. You would need to use the correct name
for your specific VM
. As all things Linux, the command is case sensitive
Edited the old script to start VM named Win2000 And here it is.
Resizing the window to use the scanner application, my sole reason for having the VM as there are no Linux drivers for the scanner.
The main VBox window does not open, just the Win2000 VM runs, as seen above. When I shutdown Windows, the VM window closes and nothing is left behind on the desktop.
