Description

hi all !

The current possibility to install VirtualBox inside VirtualBox doesn't works anyways.

I think it would be good to disable such ability at all (until it's fixed). (in both Windows and Linux installers) so upon detection of VirtualBox hardware the setup will give error message to the user.

I honestly fail to see why anyone would want to do that. The objective of a VirtualMachine is to be completely transparent to the applications, so you should be able to install ANYTHING you want on it. And if it crashes, well, fix it ;)

I haven't tried this setup myself, but according to this  http://www.virtualbox.org/attachment/wiki/Screenshots/vbox_under_vista_in_vbox_under_xp.png, it should work without much problems (at least the installation).

Cheers, KM
