I downloaded an R1 alpha 3 Anyboot image,But I don’t know how to convert it into a VDI file for use with Virtualbox, But I don’t know how. Virtualbox does not accept .image files, and I cannot find any tutorials online about how to do it. Does anybody here know how to convert them? I am using Windows Vista as the Host.
I think if you download a VM (vmdk) image, it works out of the box with Virtualbox. See also this guide.
Thanks, But I just wanted to know if there was any way to convert .image files to the .vdi file format. I saw that QEMU works for the Anyboot images, and on the download page, it says that the Anyboot images are the prefered method of distrobution.
No idea how to convert anyboot to a VM image, sorry. I guess that anyboot is the preferred format to install Haiku natively, because it’s a single format that can be written to USB or a partition or burned to CD.
I think you are wrong. Raw images are one thing, and anyboot images are another different. If you want to use anyboot images to INSTALL Haiku in VirtualBox rename de file to .iso and it should work ( in fact thats what i did ). If you want a running enviroment use the Raw images wich you can converto to vdi with: VBoxManage convertfromraw rawimage finalimage.vdi
VBoxManage is a tool u can find in the installation directory of the program. ( in a terminal or ms-dos window )
