Ticket #1745 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Read Only Virtual Disk Image hangs on boot instead of reporting error => Fixed SVN
|Reported by:||Garnett||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 1.6.0||Keywords:||read only|
Attempting to boot a virtual machine with a read-only VDI file results in a error condition within the virtual machine boot process vs. an error message from Virtual Box.
I realize this is a minor issue and it does not make sense to boot a read-only disk file. It would be very helpful if Virtual Box checked for write permission on the VDI file and reported the error (much like when starting a virtual machine with port forwarding and the port is already in use on the host).
