myob, could you give some hints on how to create an image VirtualBox will accept?

comment:2 Changed 12 years ago by akaposi

tqh: virtualbox accepts normal .vmdk files as of version 1.4.0

Some additional info from the virtualbox bug tracker:

VirtualBox is based on qemu.

qemu's kernel acceleration module causes Haiku to crash with similar results. (see ticket 748 )

If you disable the kernel acceleration modules in qemu, haiku will run without error (although a little slow)

VirtualBox requires it's kernel acceleration module to be functional to work.

Reference to #748 qemu bug.

no the problem still exists - without VT-x / AMD-V

Dose haiku pre-alpha crash under VirtualBox 2.2 for anyone?

AFAICT Haiku works well in VirtualBox now, in any case, this is old.
