[Help] Installing using a virtual machine
« on: June 03, 2010, 07:14:46 PM »
Ok guys, it doesn't seem that hard to install but I'm having some issues when it comes to USB. Windows seems to want to use it, so the guest machine cannot and thus Virtualbox is producing a busy USB error. I've got up to the iboot screen and clicked console, but it's not relaying what's in the terminal because I assume it can't use the openiboot USB. So I can't install. ANy ideas? I've tried dual booting Ubuntu, but for some reason it doesn't want to recognise my Windows partition and I can't be bothered to get it all working, then get wifi working etc. It's a pain for something that's in beta. Thanks.

Exactly what error do you get when trying to use USB in the VM?
BTW, I recommend dualbooting, you'll have way more problems using a VM than a dualboot. It shouldn't need any driver installation, mine found all of them alone :D

Dual boots caused errors too. Got it working. Kill itunes helper in windows. Simple. Any ideas now I'm running android? There's some awesome releases but they've been removed :/

you can just make a live cd or boot ubuntu off of a thumb drive which is a hell of a lot easier than using a virtual machine.

PS: and it leaves your other operating systems untouched (so basically its a little bit harder to f yer compooter with a live cd/thumb drive)
