Moving Vbox partition from ext4 fs to NTFS
It's me. :| Again :|
So , this time , my question is :
When i had windows vista on my pc , i used to use virtual box .. and well ... have some virtual harddisks in my NTFS partition.
I can acces and use those from my VirtualBox from ubuntu 10.04 if that matters.
Unfortunately the NTFS partition is the biggest , and i don't have enoguh space to make a Virtual machine on my /home partition (small)
So , i thought i could tell the vm to do a harddisk directly in the NTFS partition.
But it gives me some error.
Failed to create the hard disk storage /media/Data/win7ntfs.vdi.
Could not create the medium storage unit '/media/Data/win7ntfs.vdi'.
VDI: writing pre-header failed for '/media/Data/win7ntfs.vdi' (VERR_NET_OPERATION_NOT_SUPPORTED).
So i tried doing it in my home partition and then moving it to the NTFS,
Everything nice until installing the os in it.
It stops and just hangs there.
how to make that virtual harddisk and put it in the NTFS partition , while still being able to use it?
why do i need it?
my school teaches me power point ... and i dont have it ...
i need a virtual machine with windows 7 .. but dont have space to put it in /home ..
i need to put the virtual disc in my NTFS partition and have problems with that
i know i can use Wine or Crossover but i'm just not in the mood of installing wine right now (it worked always well , but just that ... i don't know ... i want to feel like when i'm using it at school ... wine would give me an ugly thing... )
