Virtualbox to ISO

Post by droidus » 2019/10/26 23:15:31

I am trying to convert my VirtualBox image to an ISO so I can boot it off of a hard drive, and continue from there.
Looking here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/556911/ ... m-vdi-file
I ran the first command. For now, I don't have a hard drive to test on, so I just created a new VM, booted to the ISO, but then it said that there was no bootable media found.
It sounds like I will also need to run virt-sysprep on it for this to work, but when I tried to install it, yum said it could not locate this package.

so where did you save the iso file ?
booted to the ISO,
from which media ?

Anyway when you install an os in VB, this one creates fake GPU, fake Netcard aso...

If you finally boot from this image into a real machine, I'm not sure it will work.

I saved it onto my local machine.
The generated ISO from VB.

So you saved the .iso there for a future boot from another hard drive you don't have yet ?

So I would suggest you to wait for this other hard drive and come back at this moment.

You want to clone your hard disk install to a DVD? Not possible.
