Virtual Box 3.0.12 does not find Win7 Partition from eeePC install CD

Reported by: zdavatz Owned by:

Description

I bought an eeePC 1101 with Win7 preinstalled on it. I installed Linux and then I installed VirtualBox 3.0.12. Now I would like to install Win7 on my Gentoo-Linux in VirtualBox. Vista and XP run fine.

But: VirtualBox obviously does not find the partition for Win7 as it does for Vista.

See Screenshot.

Any hints are welcome.

Of course you created a vmdk container that refers to the physical partition where win7 is stored? OEM Windows versions do not install in a VM, because they are bound to hardware. I suggest you go to the forum first to look around for similar discussions.

Please note that this is not the place to ask questions. You'll have a much higher chance of getting answers on the forum.

Thank you for the link. The next person who will trip over this will not have to ask anymore because you supplied a link. That is helpful. What matters is that the answers are found easily by Google. I believe my question did help in that way.

Ok, please see the added attachments (access-violation-at-address-00404f06.jpg and CreateInstanceEnum-failed-by-WBEM_S_FALSE.jpg) and also please see what I set via the file win7set. It is all attached. Setting those settings with

VBoxManage setextradata

did not help. So what else do you recommend I do? In the mean time I will search more in the forums and report here what I find.

BTW: If I search in the forum for OEM I get no result:

I've asked you politely not to ask questions or ask for support unrelated to VirtualBox bugs here. You will not get any help by posting question at the wrong place.
