Virtual machine won't work on my yoga 910 using VirtualBox

Q: Virtual machine won't work on my yoga 910 using VirtualBox

Hi,I'm trying to run a 64bit virtual machine on my Yoga 910 using VirtualBox but fails to do so.I use this machine already on another computer successfully, so it can't be the Ova file.I checked the BIOS configuration and the "Intel Virtual Technology" is "Enabled".When I start the machine it keeps saying "VT-x is not available".I changed the virtual machine configuration to use less memory, and then a BSOD kept coming. One time the virtual machine did start working and then the error message within the virtual machine was something about not having an option to run 64bit operation system.I looked and the virtual machine settings had only options for 32bit operation systems (screenshot attached).I tried to switch between Quite Mode and High-Performance Mode in the BIOS but without any luck.The BIOS version I have is 2jcn35ww. Please help -How do I run the virtual machine on my Yoga 910?How do I make the 64bit appear on my virtual machine settings?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Well, do you have an .iso for Windows 98? VirtualBox only offers you the possibility to create virtual machines, it doesn't provide the installation source (.iso) for the OS you want to install.

I just installed windows 8.1 pro on an MSI z97 pc mate motherboard with I5 3.3 ghz processor, 16 gb ddr3 1600 MHz ram, with embedded realtek pcie gbe NIC. I checked and found that hardware virtualization is enabled by default in the BIOS.

I tried to set up a virtual switch using the latest bios and drivers from MSI. I created a virtual switch choosing the external option and the share with host OS option. I then connected to the VM. No network connectivity on VM but host still worked.

I then used autopatcher to update windows 8.1 on the vm. I removed and reinstalled the virtual switch choosing external option and share with host OS option. Same conditions occurred.
And then I installed the latest NIC driver. Same problem - media disconnected.

I tried this process with the latest driver from the realtek website which was a couple years more up to date. I had such high hopes! Same problem.

I then used msconfig to prevent all non-Microsoft services from starting and rebooted. I removed and recreated the switch and I was still hoping for success. Same exact conditions occurred.

These are the conditions that occur whenever an external switch with host os sharing enabled is installed in between all of these troubleshooting steps. It looks exactly the same every time...

Hi Jason6161 Two of these words are closely related, while the other one isn't.Remote Desktop is often a reference to the "RDP" acronym, which means "Remote Desktop Protocol", a protocol used by Microsoft Windows systems to remotely connect to another Windows system (or even other OS now).

It's the emulation of a system inside another system. So you could for example have Windows 8.1 installed on your computer, but using a program, create a virtual machine running Windows XP in it. To put it simply, it's running an independant system (guest) inside a system (host).

It's what we call an "hypervisor". A program that allows you to create and manage virtual machines.

This is going to be long but please hear me out I'm desperate for help.

It began when one of my RAM sticks failed. After some assistance from my friend in figuring out the RAM was the problem I removed the offending stick and everything seemed back to normal except I wasn't getting any internet on my computer, showing a red x over the internet icon. Windows 7. I ran the troubleshooter and it said that the VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter was experiencing problems, vague I know. I also found it weird because why would VirtualBox problems have anything to do with the connection on my physical machine?

Anyway I visited my friend who let me use his computer to download clean drivers and he was kind enough to give me a spare network card to try. Neither solution made any difference even though everything else seems in normal working order.

How I got the VBoxSDL interface working for VirtualBox 4.3.12 x64.

A long time ago, ever since I read the VirtualBox user manual I saw the VboxSDL interface mentioned.
Chapter 9. Advanced topics

Works nice, on Linux, It seems you can get native full-screen on any supported resolution in a VM.

We need to run it in a command line /terminal.

basic command:

Code:
VBoxSDL --startvm "vm-name"


In this example I use an exising VM of Windows XP called simply "xp"

Don't start the VM here,
This window was just to see the VM names: we won't use the normal interface because that one works, we know it.

To start the VM called "xp" with the SDL interface, use the command like this:

Code:
VBoxSDL --startvm "xp"


Big chance for that to fail since we dn't have a path variable for that location.

So to be safe, the full command wil work like this:

Code:
"%programfiles%\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxSDL.exe" --startvm "xp"


So we try that vboxsdl command line on Windows, here x64, in a cmd window, assuming that we run from the install of VirtualBox in Program Files. Used VirtualBox here in example is 4.3.12 64bit.

We get this famous result:

(notice version number)

Hmmm... Direct what?
After searching that up, we find out that the official Windows version of provided VBoxSDL.exe isn't maintained or is outdated. The sdl.dll that is provided on Windows misses a dependency to msvcr80.dll (why?!) but I assume that... Read more

Hello everyone,

I am hoping someone may be able to help me with the following. I tried to use VMware's free "converter" software to convert my physical HP machine to a virtual machine. However, when trying to run the virtual machine, it says that the virtual machine has two processors & that it is limited to only using one processor, & therefore, will not start. The physical machine is a dual core processor, but I see no way to configure the virtual machine so that it only has one processor.

It seems to me the software should just configure itself to at least run, and from there a person can try to tweak the settings and be advised if there are limitations at that point, but that would make to much sense. Alternatively, they could provide an easy way to change the settings so you can at least get the thing to run, but again, that would make to much sense.

Anyway, if anyone can help me get the virtual machine clone running, please let me know.

Thanks

You'd need to get yourself some virtualization software.
I use VirtualBox, but there are others available if you prefer.

You also need the installation disks for an Operating System, and a license to install them as though on a regular machine.

If the Operating System you install is 32 bit it will be able to run 16 bit software.
If the Operating System you install is 64 bit it won't be able to, just as your physical host OS cannot run such software.
If you install another family of OS onto the VM, such as Linux, you'll be able to run Linux software from within the Virtual machine but not Windows software.

Any more questions feel free to ask.
And Merry Christmas to you too.

Okay so I was wondering earlier. Is it possible, and if so is it easy enough, to use a Virtual Machine to test files for malware. For example, if you used VM Ware and install Windows or Linux and some security tools on it and tested files on there before using it on your actual PC. So you could determine whether or not a file was clean, and if it was then fair enough you can use it on your actual PC. So, is there any chance that if a file was infected, it could break out of the Virtual Machine and infect your actual PC, rather than just infecting the Virtual PC and you just wiping that and reverting back.

If this can be done, then is there a good free alternative to VM Ware for using Virtual Machines, because as far as I know, VM Ware isn't free and unfortunately I can't purchase it right now. Also, does anybody know of a tutorial or can write one themselves on using a Virtual Machine like VM Ware, for checking files for malware and infections using Virtual Machines. Preferably using Linux as I don't have a spare copy of Windows to use right now, however either will do.

Thanks for reading.

A:Virtual Machine Help

The question you must first answer is whether you want to be able to use both OS's at the same time - - for that you'd need to use a Virtual Machine.
If you want to run them separately, then you could install them as dual-boot.

As far as Virtual Machines Hosts go, you'd probably be better with Oracle VirtualBox than Microsoft VPC2007 - (VPC isn't fully supported in Vista Home Premium). Other options include VMWare (which is arguably better than either).

Dual Booting Windows and Linux is not really a job for beginners - although there are many sites that will get you started - and I would suggest playing in a VM first even if you eventually elect a dual-boot.

Hi all
One should not DEFRAG SSD's.

However if one uses Virtual Machines quite a lot with data updates / changes then a Virtual Hard drive usually needs to be de-fragmented due to the way the Virtual I/O is mapped to the "Real File system" on the host machine.

Since defragmenting SSD's is NOT at all recommended does this imply that one should NOT use SSD's for Virtual Machines or Virtual Hard disks.

I've googled around but can't seem to find any refrences on this particular topic.

Using an SSD for a HOST OS is fine since the OS itself doesn't change much but a Virtual Machine is a different matter.

Cheers
jimbo

A:SSD use for Virtual Machine(s)

Actually you can defrag a SSD, and it does indeed help improve performance, because of compressing free space.

However:
It should not or does not need to be done often.
Also, defragmenters like the built in Win7 one can cause more harm than good.

Defragmenters like PerfectDisc, with the Consolodate option is perfectly safe for a SSD.
Although it states its defragmenting, all it is actually doing is compressing free space, which is fine.

Theres also DiskKeeper, but it requires an additional add-on called Hyperfast.
(I know little about this other than it supposedly works very well for SSDs and in much the same manner)

Obviously you wouldn't want to run it daily, but on occasion does help, and is fine.

Im only aware of these 2 that are safe to use w/SSDs. More so with PD11.


Sadly, I am not all that familiar with VMs.
But, would it possibly help to consolodate the system files, then set up your VM?

Sorry not much help.

I've used Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 and now I'm demoing VMWare for a trial period. I must say on so far only running Virtuals of Vista, XP, and Server 2003 Vista is hard to emulate for a virtual PC. The funny thing is that VMWare does a better job than Virtual PC which is funny considering MS makes Vista and you would think they could emulate it better but no.

So that kind of gets to my next question? Anyone know any more virtual machines out there they themselves have tried and where please with. I'm thinking of forcing some of my users in my domain to go virtual and creating an image of their Harddisks on site. It's Sooooo much easier restoring a virtual system versus the real thing in every sense of the word. So far I like VMware more the way it handles and the options it gives but MS Virtual PC 07' you can't beat at it's price, free.

a friend of mine has a windows 8 laptop but needs windws 7 for some work stuff,if i install windows 7 on a virtual machine on his windows 8 laptop will it work ok

A:virtual machine

Yes, it will, but you would need a decent amount of memory for it to work well. How much RAM does the laptop have?Also, has your friend tried changing the compatibility settings for the program and set it to Windows 7 to see if it works?

Hi folks;

I'm having problems installing java virtual machine (again.) I've been trying for 3 days but keep getting corrupt files and have to start all over again.
What is the best site to download it from?

Why does IE 6 not have virtual machine on it? I'm thinking of uninstalling it and downloading IE 5.5 instead, because that already has it on, but I always have problems downloading IE 5.5 too.

I have just installed some software for a client running an XP Pro system that requires MS Virtual Machine. On looking on the MS site, it says that I should wait until SP1 comes out to get VM. There must be a quicker way. Does anyone out there know where I can download MS Virtual Machine for XP Pro.

The client is a doctor and needs VM to enter a VPN - people could die while we wait for Mr Gates!!

I have a copy and you should hopefully be able to download it by clicking on the link below.

Hi guys,

I just reformat & reinstall win 98 SE.
My IE freeze when opening what I thought to be a java script window.
In the past I recall a window pop up telling me to download microsoft virtual machine, so I go to microsoft site only to find that there's a legal dispute with Sun system.

So what should I do so I can open javascript window without problem?

thanks

Years ago, when cd players and burners were painfully slow
I used an app that emulated an optical drive on your hard
disk. It mounted a drive letter which appeared in My Computer
as a cdrom. (I can't remember the app's name!) That's the
one and only time I've used virtual software.

I've got a problem which might be resolved if I could copy
some freshly installed XP system files. Extracting them from
the installation disk won't work. I need to copy the files
after they're installed and make a few edits.

I was hoping I could create a virtual copy of XP. Installing a
"real" copy of XP just to get a few fresh system files seems
like killing a fly with a sledge hammer.

Normally, if you want to access any system file the best thing
to use is a boot disk or the Recovery Console. You can't copy,
move, or delete any locked file from within the Windows
environment. You can try with apps like Unlocker or CopyLock.
I wish these kind of apps were not available at all! The only
safe way to access a critical file is from a command prompt
before Windows starts.

The big question is, if I create a virtual XP how can I copy system
files? Even though the system is "synthetic" it's still going to act
like the real thing. You can't use a boot disk with a virtual system,
as far as I know.

The app I've looked at so far is VMware Player, only because it's
free. Is there a VM app that would behave enough like the rea... Read more
