No need to covert the VDI file to RAW format. Just copy the vdi file into the local folder. For me, I will just put it at /root/testing.vdi
Step 2, Create a new VM in Proxmox
On the “OS” tab, choose “Do not use any media”
On the “Hard Disk” tab, choose “local-lvm”, as storage, Disk size is any size you want, for example, 8GB. Format, choose “Raw disk image (raw)”, On CPU and Memory, choose the same as the Virtualbox settings.
Confirm to create the new VM.
Step 3, Detach and Remove the Hard Disk
Say my VM ID is 109, choose Virtual Machine 109, Hardware, Hard Disk, choose “Detach” button.
At this point, the hard disk will be listed as “Unused Disk.” It still exists but is not attached to the system. To destroy it completely, select the Unused Disk and click Remove again; and confirm when prompted.
The only Free Virtual software.
Sometimes I need a different OS for testing purpose. I don’t want to install on a real computer. Otherwise I will be bothered by install another one or rewrite it.
To save time and space. I am looking for the VM software.
There are some products on the market. Including Oracle VirtualBox, VMware, Microsoft Virtual PC, etc.
After researching, I decide to use VirtualBox.
Windows, OS X, Linux, Solaris.
I tried both Windows XP and Windows 7. Easy and simply to installation.
Just download the VirtualBox 3.2.10 for Windows host, Save it and install this file.
