Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I have an HP laptop and i did some work on trying to install vista on a VM. The installation would stop saying that i have not the correct product.
I tried to change the system and bios dmi information of my vm without any luck. I gave a try to vmware and i could install vista after modifying the vmware bios. If i modify the Motherboard model in the vmware bios (with the phoenix bios editor), the installer recognize the VM as a correct product and let me perform the installation.
I looked in http://www.virtualbox.org/browser/trunk/src/VBox/Devices/PC/DevPcBios.cpp#L899 and i couldnt see any DMI settings for the motherboard.
Would it possible to add them ( i dont know how difficult it would be...)?
