windows 2008 on hardy+virtualbox

(kvm is the next on the todo list)

I had to install Virtualbox 1.6.2 from here: Link on Ubuntu 8.04

and remove the old one $apt-get remove virtualbox-ose

some required packages to compile the module

sudo apt-get install bcc iasl xsltproc xalan libxalan110-dev uuid-dev zlib1g-dev libidl-dev libsdl1.2-dev libxcursor-dev libqt3-headers libqt3-mt-dev libasound2-dev libstdc++5 linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential
sudo apt-get install gcc g++ bcc iasl xsltproc uuid-dev zlib1g-dev libidl-dev libsdl1.2-dev libxcursor-dev libqt3-headers libqt3-mt-dev libasound2-dev libstdc++5 libhal-dev libpulse-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev

dpkg -i virtualbox_1.6.2-31466_Ubuntu_hardy_i386.deb

/usr/bin/VirtualBox


Then create the 20G disk and mount the windows 2008 iso (see the link from my previous vmware/windows2008 post )

And install guest additions from the menu
