Is anyone familiar with Virtual Machines? and setting them up?
I have no trouble setting them up on my computer on either hard drive I have. But I want to install one on a Flash drive or my old iPod Photo. So far I have tried just creating the VM right onto both the FD/ipod but with varying results. The times it made it past the format and file copying it would error out during the installation of windows. I have tried creating it onto my hd then moving the files to the fd/ipod and doing that it couldn't find the files it needed even when I browsed and told it where they were. I have tried making the VM hd different sizes and swapped back and forth between pre allocating and not allocating space until it was needed. So far the closest I have gotten was I made it 99% through windows install but then kept getting errors that it couldn't get files from the "disc" (ISO image of disc). I told it to retry a few times then said continue without and it said corrupt hd when I tried to boot the computer. Because the flash drive and my iPod are considered removable media, I am limited to split 2gig hd files.
Anyone have any idea if it is possible to install a VM on a flash drive or iPod. If it is any one know how? Or does anyone know how to fake my computer into thinking an iPod is not removable but in fact a standard hd? Thanks for any help, even if its a link to another website. I attempted to search but found minimal stuff. Then again it was late at night so I'll probably look again also.
