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



Question:

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?


Solution:1

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.
