Mepis 8 in VirtualBox 2.2.2
I am trying to install Mepis 8 from the downloaded .iso into VirtualBox 2.2.2 on my PCLos system.
I create a 10 Gb virtual disk and let the Mepis installation do its thing for the partitioning.
I accept all defaults until I am asked if I want to install GRUB. Since this will be the only disk and installation visible to the virtual machine
I did not install GRUB. I left the Bootdisk (hda) and Use initrd checked even though they are greyed out.
After installation I tell the virtual machine to boot from hard disk, but
when I try to boot Mepis I get a message FATAL: Could not read from the boot medium ! System halted.
I have installations of XP and PCLos for VBox in my PCLos system and have
not come across this problem.
Can anyone advise ?
Should I install GRUB, even though the VBox .vdi file is the only hdd that
the VBox Mepis virtual machine can see ? If so, should I install to mbr
or root ?
The only difference between the Mepis installation and the XP or PCLos installations in VBox is this GRUB installation.
