    You didn't listen -- VirtualBox is virtualization software that requires direct access to priviledged CPU calls. You must install it as an administrator, and the virtualization engine installs drivers that run as the administrator on behalf of a limited user. You do not have such access so you cannot install software such as VirtualBox, Virtual PC, or VMWare that perform fast virtualization.

    You are stuck using QEmu which fully emulates a computer as a software application. And that is slower often by a factor of 100x, which is far more than what "15 years" of computing has been able to advance processing power.

    Re: How to run Linux in Windows with limited access/rights

    The answer to your question is you cannot virtualize Linux within Windows without administrator rights (i.e. privileged access to the CPU). There is no further answer than this.

    Re: How to run Linux in Windows with limited access/rights

    Why couldn't you let the community answer that for me then, instead of accusing me of doing something I shouldn't be, then telling me that a thread concerning Linux doesn't belong in a forum for Linux.

    From the Code of conduct

    unauthorisded access to systems is contrary to law in most countries that is why we do not allow it

    This is not a crack site , its a professional IT Support site

Doing any of these may lead to you being temporarily or permanently banned from these forums (and your service provider may also be informed).

    Re: How to run Linux in Windows with limited access/rights

    I didn't ask for, nor do I want a crack.

    I asked for a method of running a Linux distribution from within Windows.

    Maybe your mind goes directly to 1337 h4xx0rs and all of that, but I'm pretty sure running Linux from a USB stick within Windows isn't illegal. It's probably possible for someone to get into a sticky situation that way, but there's plenty of bad things you can do from within Windows too. I'm not intending to do either.

    My original post: "How to run Linux in Windows with limited access/rights

    How could you run Linux (like Puppy Linux) on a computer running Windows, but here's the thing:

    1. Live Media is a no go (network boot)
    2. You cannot install VMware or any other .exe (but portable apps--.paf.exe--from portableapps.com work for some reason)


    I was wondering if this was even possible. Maybe run virtual box/VMware off a USB stick if that's possible.

    Any ideas?"

    Re: How to run Linux in Windows with limited access/rights

    Might I add explicity:

    How to run Linux in Windows with limited access/rights (without doing anything illegal, gaining additional system rights, or anything else that falls in the shady area).

    How could you run Linux (like Puppy Linux) on a computer running Windows, but here's the thing:

    2. You cannot install VMware or any other .exe (but portable apps--.paf.exe--from portableapps.com work for some reason)

    Re: How to run Linux in Windows with limited access/rights

    Again, both KiwiNZ and I have gave you a thorough explanation why the thread will remain closed. As far as I am concerned this manner is over and done with. This is not a Linux question as much as it is a Windows question at this point for you to address with your network administrators.

    Then move it to the Windows section.

    Re: How to run Linux in Windows with limited access/rights

    Ok *fine*, I am tired of arguing this. I have moved and re-opened the thread to the Windows discussion but will continue to monitor it. At any signs of illegal activity the thread will be taken offline and involved parties will be issued the appropriate infractions.
