    Re: Virtual PC 2007 and trying to install Gutsy

    I'm using virtual box with Ubuntu 7.10 but it doesn't work either. I have a CD and have the ISO captured.

    (I only tried DSL to see if it would run and posted the info to see if it would help solve my issue. )

    The boss has gone home. Ah well even though there is no way to repeat a first impression there's always tomorrow!

    It's be great to get this working, I just have no idea what the issue is. Does anyone?

    Would anyone be able to help with my issue today or would you have any ideas why the install won't start?

    VPC2007 is a legendary dud turd when it comes to virtualising Linux. Please use a better application. Both VMWare Server and VirtualBox are free and come highly recommended. You can see for yourself how bad VPC2007 is;

    But if you insist on polishing a turd, this might be of some help;

    But please, use a better application!

    Whoa there fella,

    Polishing a turd is a little harsh considering I have already installed virtual box (see my second post). . I didn't install VMware as I though you had to pay. I've since seen you don't and have tried that too. Same result, no joy

    So I tried what should have been a obvious thing and burned a CD and booted off it and it gave the same result too. Dodgy ISO arrgh!

    I've since downloaded a new ISO burned it again and have tested it and all is good. In fact I'm typing this from the live CD!

    I'll have to wait until tomorrowto try it in a VM.

    For the record I think VirtualBox is the best of the bunch, clean and simple to use. Why VMWare is raved about so much I don't know. If I hadn't used the other 2 first I wouldn't have had a clue how to use it.

    Thanks for your attention to the thread, I'll let you know how it goes.

    Ahh, the old dogy ISO trick! Good luck with your virtualisation quest.

    Re: Virtual PC 2007 and trying to install Gutsy

    I'm back at work and everything is going very well, with one problem. No sound.

    When I test sound in System>pref>sound I get this error (with Sound Events>Sound playback set to auto detect)
    Code:
    audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Could not open resource for writing.
    In the Device Manager I cant see a sound card. In Vista it's listed as a SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD.

    Any ideas?

    (As a fairly new member to the forums, I'm not sure if it would it be proper to close this thread and post elsewhere, start a new thread in Virtualization or continue this thread?)

    Re: Virtual PC 2007 and trying to install Gutsy

    Hello there.

    I am also using VirtualBox at work under Windows to virtualize Ubuntu 7.10. (Missing it so badly up until the evening, if you know what I mean )
    I also find VirtualBox a top-notch program, right up there with VMWare, and light years ahead of Virtual PC (after M$ bought Connectix, that is).

    Anyway, the fact is VirtualBox does not emulate the sound card by default. You need to look at the various settings of your Virtual Computer and enable the emulation of the sound card from there.

    Hi erginemr and thanks, I've found the setting and enabled the sound card. So that means, I'm there

    SWEET

    Thanks everyone for the help!
