Re: Request for help on VM

A) I have installed VirualBox and then installed WindowsXP as guest OS. Following are my observations:
1. The information reported by windows device manager (which is running on windows partition) related to chip set, NIC, Audio device etc and the information reported by the windows device manager of windows XP which is running as guest OS are different.
2. I am not able to play audio/video files in the guset OS. (I am able to play same files in Windows XP which is running in windows partition and in F10 also).
3. Web cam is also not working in the guest OS. I have tried skype but it is also not woking.

B) Then I have tried with QEMU also and the result is same. With the QWMU the system performance is very slow.

C) I could install VM with XEN. I could not find KVM for XEN.

Windows running as a guest OS on a VM will really work like windows on a standole system? If so, how to do that?

Any help please?

                             G'day all,

               I have two partitions in my PC. I have installed F10
               on one partition  and Windows XP on the second
               partition. Now, can I run the XP as guest  OS on F10
               using VM? and how?
                               Did you try VirtualBox?
       VirtualBox isn't part of Fedora, and it's not required to do
       what the
       OP's asking about.  The virtualization that comes with Fedora
       just fine.
           That being said, and the fact that the OP wasn't specific about
   which VM system he wanted to use, if a specific one was in mind,
   VirtualBox works wonderfully, so far, in my limited use, if he's
   interested in that option.

To convert a Windows partition to a Virtual Machine can be done in a few ways.
1. Use VMWare's P2V converter. This will convert the data in the partition to a .VDK file. You can then import this into Virtualbox. I don't know if you can do the same with KVM (Fedora's built-in virtual machine).
2. Virtualbox has a web page on how to convert physical to virtual:
3. Convert to KVM essentially use VMWare's tool to convert to a .vmdk, and use qemu-img to import it into KVM.
