    Installed Windows XP on VIrtualBox?

    Well, I want to run windows on ubuntu (Tried the other way around, windows crashed alot), so I wanted to use VirtualBox to do this. Only thing is, I dont know how I could hook up the XP that is installed onto the VirtualBox. The last resort im going to take is copy the version from my school (Its legal, Microsoft Academy stuff :3), but I would like to make it easier then copying 700mb to my house.

    Summary: How can I get a preinstalled version of windows on VirtualBox, if it is possible?

    Thanks!

    Look at the virtualbox user manual!

    http://www.virtualbox.org/download/UserManual.pdf

    The answer should be there!

    Its not a problem, just I dont know how to. And the manual only explains how to install if you have the ISO file, which I do not. All I have is the recovery disk from HP (Ill try them, but dunno if it will work :S).
