keyboard problems when installing Windows XP as a Guest on an Ubuntu Gutsy Host
|Reported by:||callegar||Owned by:|
When trying to install Windows XP as a Guest on an Ubuntu Gutsy host, the following problem happens:
1) First part of installation (text mode) starts fine 2) Then windows reboots and enters in second part of installation (graphics mode) 3) If you run this session with mouse and keyboard grabbed... 4) You will soon realize that the keyboard is grabbed but does not pass any key to the guest os 5) For instance at a certain point the installer asks your name and organization and you cannot type them 6) At this point also the host key to ungrab keyboard and mouse will not work.
So it is not possible to install Windows XP as a guest os.
