Re: Running ACRN in Virtualbox on NUC7i7DNH?

Hi Lonnie,

 

I have never heard of anyone attempting to boot ACRN in a VirtualBox VM… do let us know if you and have any success there! 😉

 

One other path you could take is to QEMU on Windows and follow this tutorial: https://projectacrn.github.io/latest/tutorials/acrn_on_qemu.html. I don’t have any experience with QEMU on Windows, but assuming it only does the emulation piece, you’d probably also want to use the HAXM driver to expose VT-x (https://github.com/intel/haxm).

 

Unfortunately, I don’t have any Windows machine other than my official IT machine… and I don’t think my IT department would be too thrilled if I was to try this on it 😊

 

Cheers,

Geoffroy

Subject: [acrn-users] Running ACRN in Virtualbox on NUC7i7DNH?

 

Hi All,

 

I am running my new NUC7i7DNHE that has Windows 10 on it and have installed VirtualBox so that I can use it as a build platform for ACRN in some VM's.

 

I am wondering if anyone has been able to install and boot up ACRN in a VirtualBox VM with Clear Linux or other?

 

I have been using these dated ACRN videos as guides while trying to replicate just a basic install and boot up of ACRN to see it in action before wiping my NUC and working from that pathway.

 

 

--- ACRN Getting Started and Demo

 

 

--- Info on ACRN design 

 

Basically, I would just like to see it run locally, in a VM if possible, before digging heavier into it.

 

Cheers,

Lonnie
