MWG7 and virtualbox

I like virtualbox as the software is free and I do not have any major problem in comparation with VMWare workstation.

The only big problem is that MWG7 iso is not booting (s. screenshot).

Any special reason ? It's a bug or a feature ?

Best regards Boris

Re: MWG7 and virtualbox

Hey Boris,

the BIOS is checked for a string "VMWare" or "McAfee". If this is not present, MWG won´t install.

Best,

Andre

Ciao Andy, No chance, I modified the settings (McAfee|VMWare|vmware,etc), but maschine still not booting. Are you sure about the checked strings?

VBoxManage setextradata "MWG7.2" "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcbios/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "VMWare"

VBoxManage setextradata "MWG7.2" "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcbios/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "VMWare Virtual Platform"

VBoxManage setextradata "MWG7.2" "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcbios/0/Config/DmiBIOSVendor" "Phoenix Technologies LTD"

Re: MWG7 and virtualbox

I`m using MWG 6.8 and 7 on virtualbox about year (for testing purposes) and was not find any issues.

How to set up MWG on another platform - it is possible, ask support for this.
