View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu Virtual Machine

August 30th, 2011, 10:27 PM
Hello TechGurus...
I have a laptop running Windows 7 and I have installed VM Player and run Ubuntu 10.04 as virtual machine.
Lately, the vmplayer runs into problems and Ubuntu takes forever to load (and nothing else works while it is trying to boot).
Is there a way, I can reinstall vmplayer without haveing to reinstall Ubuntu? I have some data that I don't want to lose.
2nd option for me will be to dual boot and install Ubuntu on a separate partition. In that case, will I be able to fetch the data from my virtual machine?
3rd situation...I have a separate partition (NTFS) where I have all my data. If I install Ubuntu as a dual boot, how can I access that data on the NTFS partition from Ubuntu?

Thanks a lot guys and I appreciate in advance your guidance.
