Ubuntu: Can Snappy Ubuntu be installed on VirtualBox on Windows Host?


I am running VirtualBox on Windows host. I would like to test out Snappy Ubuntu on VirtualBox first. Can this be done? If yes, how?


Definitely! Assuming you want amd64, download the Ubuntu Core image for it (release candidate here), and uncompress it to get the raw image. Then convert it into a VDI for Virtualbox. In Ubuntu I do that like this (I assume this command is also available in Windows):

$ VBoxManage convertdd ubuntu-core-16-amd64-rc.img ubuntu-core-16-amd64-rc.vdi --format VDI  

Now create a new machine, select the VDI as the hard drive image, and boot.
