View Full Version : [ubuntu] VirtualBox can't find USB when installing Win XP

I'm installing Windows XP in VirtualBox on a Dell Inspiron notebook, fairly straightforward, except....

The Windows XP installer (your basic, just-booted, blue screen with white text) is waiting for user/moi to Press Enter to install the system. I Press Enter. No response.

Long story short, it turns out that VirtualBox wants access to the host (assuming Linux) "usb filesystem", and that's where I'm stuck (I think).

Has anyone jumped over this particular hurdle before?

TIA,
