I recently installed MS Virtual PC 2004 because it was free along with Linux. I attempted to install Linux, everything appeared to be going fine, but then the next screen after i clicked install OS was just covered with red lines. I've left it for 10 minutes and the screen doesnt change. Any ideas?
If it makes any difference the version of Linux is Qubuntu. It is an .iso image and I have that image stored on the HDD.
Sounds like Linux doesn't recognize one or more of the generic "virtual" devices on the VPC. Things like the sound card, video card, network card, etc are just in the virtual world and not the ones on your real computer. Your Linux version isn't seeing them or isn't able to work right with them.
Thanks for the ideas. I'm going to try a different version of Linux see how that goes. Worth a try anyway...
I think it would be useful if maybe one of the more experienced VMware users could create a tutorial on how to monitor the changes etc to your VM by malware. By this I mean explaining what programs need to be running e.g. RegMon etc, to monitor the changes. Just a thought
Hi jamielaw,I intsalled Ubuntu 6.06 LTS on VPC. I have no sound at the moment, but everything else worked fine. I installed from an iso image downloaded through bittorrent (the Ubuntu site has the official tracker). If you have problems, VMWare may be the way to go:
" Ubuntu and VMware have worked together to incorporate VMwareâ€™s industry-leading virtualization capabilities in a freely available and easy to use manner for Ubuntu 6.06 LTS," said Dan Chu, senior director of developer products. "Any Ubuntu user can automatically install VMware Player from the Ubuntu package manager, and join the four million plus users of VMware worldwide for running virtualized servers, desktops, and virtual appliances. Hundreds of thousands of users have already adopted Ubuntu Virtual Appliances using VMware, and the increased integration between Ubuntu and VMware will further enable broad uptake of Ubuntu Virtual Appliances."
