Ready-to-use virtual machines for open-source operating systems

Usar una partición real en VirtualBox VirtualBox nos permite trabajar con discos duros virtuales, que no son más que ficheros donde se guarda toda la información que albergaría un disco real. Pero también nos permite trabajar con discos y particiones reales. De esta manera, desde nuestro Debian, podemos estar trabajando con otro sistema que esté realmente instalado en nuestra máquina, sin necesidad de reiniciar el pc y abandonar nuestro sistema operativo favorito. Para ello, solo hay que seguir tres sencillos pasos, que empiezan por crear el fichero .vmdk que le servirá a VirtualBox como referencia de los datos. VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename /ruta/donde/guardar/el/fichero/fichero.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sdX -relative Con /ruta/donde/guardar/el/fichero indicamos donde queremos crear el fichero que vamos a crear, y con fichero.vmdk indicamos el nombre del fichero, que puede ser cualquiera. chmod 660 fichero.vmdk o los permisos que le quieran dar

Part 8: The essential collection of visualisation resources This is part of a series of posts to share with readers a useful collection of some of the most important, effective and practical data visualisation resources. This post presents the first part of a collection of books that have had most influence on my knowledge about data visualisation and its many closely-related subject areas. The selection presented includes only the books I own or I have read from a library – I have decided to exclude any books I’ve not yet read, even if they might be on other reading lists. However, I will add emerging texts to the collection as and when I get to them. This collection should be read alongside part one and part three. The categories used to organise and group the books simply represents an instinctive and personal view for how they have proven valuable to me – I appreciate they could be/will be argued, debated and refined but it will never be perfect! ** If some of the images fail to display (especially in Internet Explorer), click refresh **

Android.AppStorm | Android App Reviews, Roundups &amp; How-Tos Growing your VirtualBox Virtual Disk (The Fat Bloke Sings) Don't you just hate it when this happens: Fortunately, if you're running inside VirtualBox, you can resize your virtual disk and magically make your guest have a bigger disk very easily. There are 2 steps to doing this... 1. Use the VBoxManage command line tool to extend the size of the Virtual Disk, specifying the path to the disk and the size in MB: VBoxManage modifyhd <uuid>|<filename> [--resize <megabytes>|--resizebyte <bytes>] If you booted up your guest at this point, the extra space is seen as an unformatted area on the disk, like this: So we now need to tell the guest about the extra space available. 2. How you do this step depends on your guest OS type and the tools you have available. Linux guests often include the excellent gparted partition editor, whereas Windows 7 and 8 provide the Computer Management tool which can resize partitions. Unfortunately, with Windows XP the Computer Management tool couldn't do this. At least until the next time

MicroStrategy Soluções Business Intelligence Walkthrough: Deploy a Virtual Hard Disk for Native Boot Published: October 22, 2009 Updated: July 8, 2010 Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 This walkthrough describes how to create and configure a virtual hard disk (VHD) running Windows® 7 for native boot. A native-boot VHD is a virtual hard disk that can be used as the running operating system on designated hardware without any other parent operating system. This is in contrast to a scenario where a VHD is connected to a virtual machine on a computer with a parent operating system. In this release, VHDs can be applied to computers that have no other installations of Windows, for usage as a native-boot VHD, without a virtual machine or hypervisor. Prerequisites To complete this walkthrough, you need the following: Step 1: Create a VHD Step 2: Apply a Windows 7 image Use ImageX to apply the .wim file to the primary partition of the VHD. Step 3: Clean and partition the destination computer Boot the destination computer with your bootable Windows PE media. Next Steps See Also
