I have done quite a few installations in virtualbox, both using windows and linux, but can't understand the context.
Can you post the exact question it has been asked ?
Where in the process does it occur ?
Are you using a Host Drive (i.e the CD/DVD Drive containing the Windows CD) and has XP been installed (successfully) onto the VBox virtual hard drive?
the exact question.
Yes I am using a Host Drive and no it hasn't yet been installed - that is what I was trying to do when I got stumped with this Host Drive thing.
It appeared at the very end of inputting all the info requested and then pressing the Start button in VBox. What happens next is the process of importing all the stuff from Windows XP in the dvd.
Unfortunately, when I tried to repeat it, something flashed at the top of the screen for a nano second and then disappeared. And nothing more...
If I then go back to the VBox which shows all the settings I click on Storage
and that gets me back to this page which asks for the Host Drive.
Sorry - it's a little difficult to describe But if you open the VBox initial screen you can check on the Storage
and that might help,
I am at the final part where it wants to import files from the XP disk.
I did it successfully last year but lost it in an upgrade.
Thanks for the help - I'm off to bed now so there will be a delay in replyimg.
