Ticket #44 (closed enhancement: fixed)
[feature-request] Ability to access real Hard Disk on Linux host
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
Software: openSUSE 10.2 Linux, VirtualBox 1.3.4 Full.
Currently it is only possible to create a virtual hard disk (.vdi), but not access a physical hard disk on host computer.
On Windows Host this is a lot of work to do - will require writing of a new driver. (so I won't ask for this)
On Linux Host this is piece-a-cake. Simply let me access *any* file on my Linux system (as my hard disk image) so I will be able to install an OS on any physical hard disk, including USB flash.
Qemu allows me doing that (last month I repartitioned and installed Win98 into USB). I need this feature on VirtualBox too.
