Using VirtualBox with Debian image

Wed May 16, 2012 8:31 am

Hi all

I have downloaded the Debian image and unzipped it.
When I try to open the .img with VirtualBox it says non supported image.
Can anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.
I'm using XP.

The img is ARM code and VirtualBox can only do x86 code.

See http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... f=5&t=5743 for one way to do it.

Search the forum for qemu for others.
