Question LinuxLive (newbie) question


Greetings,

I am trying to install Backtrack 5 into a 2 GB SD card that I have got. I formatted it as a FAT32 drive. I used LinuxLive to boot backtrack within windows. I checked on the "Enable launching in windows" feature, however, even though LinuxLive states that everything went OK, I don't see any Virtualbox.exe file inside the SD directory.

Can anyone help me with a lead on what is going on here? I have searched but it doesn't seem to be a common problem whatsoever

did you install to virtual box or did you try a wubi installation?

LinuxLive seems to install virtual box inside the USB drive. However, nothing is actually installed. This guide says that there should be a folder named "virtualbox" but no such folder exists:

I'm pretty sure I:
* Formatted the drive as FAT32
* Checked on "Run on windows"


I am not sure though, if it won't work since I use an SD card (shouln't be a problem, I guess)

From what you provided, it's not a virtualbox installation, you put a live-cd on usb drive. The type of installation you're trying is, to be booted from usb, so you need to change boot order.
