    Accessing Ubuntu via Mac OSX via VirtualBox

    Okay, I have my MacBook (3.1, OSX 10.5.5) on a dual-boot with Hardy Heron. The dual boot works beautifully.

    Now, kind of adapting the advice of this thread...

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4850772

    ...I configured VirtualBox to boot my Ubuntu partitions from within OSX.

    However, when I try, I get the "frozen GRUB" problem -- it just says "GRUB..." at the top of the window and hangs. However, a regular boot into Ubuntu works fine.

    What should I be looking out for?

    Re: Accessing Ubuntu via Mac OSX via VirtualBox

    Hi,
    I am kind of a newbie at this. I have a rEFIt dual boot setup for my OSX to be able to boot Ubuntu, and it works fine. I was wondering if you could explain how to use VirtualBox to access my Ubuntu partition from OSX… all of the tutorials/posts I've read are just confusing. Thanks

    Do you want to access the guest (ubuntu) partition or the files ON the partition? If you want to access the files, you need to configure the share folders between the host and the guest. It's pretty easy. This thread here shows an example.
