Running in VirtualBox

To install EasyOS as a VirtualBox VM you first need to convert the EasyOS image to a VDI file using the following command:

VBoxManage convertfromraw easy-2.3.3-amd64.img EasyOS.vdi

Note You will need to uncompress the easy-2.3.3-amd64.img.gz file before running the above command.

Then create a new VirtualBox VM selecting the VDI file you created above as the virtual hard disk image.

Tip

Resize the VDI file before booting the VM.

When you first boot the VM, X will fail to start. You will need to run xorgwizard and select the VESA (unaccelerated) option.

To expand the filesystem (if you resized the VDI file) use the following command:

resize2fs /dev/sda2
