Hello I've deployed a 32-bit Windows 8.1 on VirtualBox on Windows 10, yet when I am logging in on the VM, a few seconds after the desktop appears, it starts flickering like a looping refresh, and I am unable to see any icons. Any fix for this, without having to reinstall the whole thing again? Cheers.

It's hard for me to admit it but there are things, ten things to be exact, that I really hate about Linux. Sometimes I think it's just me but I do see other people stating a few of these in the forums so I'm at least not alone with some of these issues. These are in no particular order and they aren't just rants; they're legitimate problems and issues that I find annoying, destroying or cloying. Feel free to add your own to the list in the Comments section. [B]1. Too Many Good Distros[/B] - I hate the fact that …

[ATTACH]16171[/ATTACH] Windows 7 offers heaps of computing-gravy for users that are looking for something sweeter than XP and less bitter than Vista. It has been optimized and overhauled into a truly modern version of Windows. Unfortunately for a lot of users, upgrading from XP is a daunting task if you want to preserve your files, settings, and programs. This is where Zinstall XP7 comes into play. It creates a virtual machine (VM) based on your old XP installation that can be accessed within Windows 7. It gives you a hot-swappable desktop that allows you to experience 7 without going through …

Research published today by data governance software developer Varonis reveals that, when it comes to the virtualized environment, security awareness appears to be something of a black hole. The [study](http://eu.vocuspr.com/Publish/517692/vcsPRAsset_517692_109957_85137914-8b53-4005-b292-0c87aa89763a_0.png) found that data security in these virtualized environments can all too often be totally neglected, and some 48% of IT organisations reported or suspected there had been unauthorised access to files kept on virtual servers. The findings suggest that when it comes to awareness of security matters regarding virtualized servers and the data stored upon them, the harsh truth of the matter is that there is very little. Indeed, the …

Hello guys, I hope am in the right forum. I am virtualizing Windows 7 on my Win 8 with Hyper-V, everything is working great, except the virtual machine is unable to find my wireless network adapter. I tried adding the legacy network adapter, nothing. It can get the wired adapter, but that's about it. Any ideas?

Hello guys. I am an HP Probook 4430s user. I just want to ask if this laptop version enables **Virtualization**. If not, then how can I enable it? It is said that Virtualization is usually disabled by default computer manufacturers. And I am not sure either how to check whether it's enabled here or not. I am hoping for an answer in regards with this. Thank you so much in advance!

I would like to run older versions of OSX on my Mac Mini. Apple dropped support for Classic Mode and for PowerPC code, which broke SoundDiver, an important tool in my home music studio. All I've been able to dig up so far about OSX virtualization is that it used to require OSX Server but won't with OSX 10.7 Lion. SoundDiver 3.x still works just fine with Windows XP. It stinks that Apple discontinued it for OSX after treating it like an unwanted stepchild for years.

Hey Windows fans, would you like to take Linux for a spin to see what everyone's buzzing about? It's easy to do in just five easy steps. You can test Linux for yourself without having to setup multibooting, worry about partitioning or installing over your current Windows system. That's right, you can. Try out that Linux power and coolness for yourself using these five easy steps. Don't worry, you'll never have to leave the comfort of Windows to do any of them--not even to a command line.

It's rare that a company like [URL="http://www.redhat.com"]Red Hat[/URL] would remove a high-end feature from its popular commercial operating system but that's just what it did. Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.0 will ship without the [URL="http://www.xen.org"]Xen[/URL] hypervisor. Instead, it will include Red Hat's own [URL="http://www.linux-kvm.org"]KVM[/URL] virtualization. Has Red Hat done itself a disservice with this move? Is it alienating an entire user base? Absolutely not, to both questions. After Red Hat purchased Qumranet in 2008 (and acquired KVM in the deal), it no longer needed to support a second, competing hypervisor. The people at Red Hat and Qumranet are smart …

This just in: [URL="http://www.redhat.com"]Red Hat, Inc[/URL]. just announced today that its Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (REV) now includes the ability to run Virtual Desktop Infrastructure or VDI. I've been a long time anti-VDI voice but Red Hat just might be the one to pull it off and make it work with its KVM and the SPICE protocol both of which were acquired in their 2008 purchase of Qumranet. If any non-container technology can make VDI work sufficiently, it is KVM and SPICE.

Did you hear that one of the web's most popular web-based collaboration suites, [URL="http://www.zimbra.com"]Zimbra[/URL], was purchased by virtualization leader, [URL="http://www.vmware.com"]VMware[/URL]? Zimbra customers like the idea of VMware owning the software suite. Industry observers have differing opinions on the topic.

I have a feeling that the desktop operating system as we know it is on its last leg. The reason I make such a bold statement is that cloud computing will replace our fat, bloated, virus-riddled, failure-prone desktop with something far more agile and elegant: A lightweight browser-based system. This sounds like good news to me. I've waited for a server-centric world for several years now and the time is almost upon us. In this brave new cloud world, you'll have access to all of your documents, music, data, pictures and applications regardless of the device in your hands. To …

If you've ever remotely operated one computer from another, you've used desktop virtualization. It's been built into Linux, Mac OS X and Windows for years, but recent moves by Red Hat could signal that it's about to go mainstream. The Linux company late last week announced that it was opening the source code for [url=http://www.spice-space.org/]SPICE[/url], the Simple Protocol forIndependent Computing Environment it inherited along with its acquisition of virtualization tools maker Qumranet in 2008.

Thanks to new firmware (v.1.3) released last Thursday, Dell's Lifecycle Controller now works with system management tools from BMC and Microsoft. Most reports that followed Dell's Thursday announcement focused on the speed and capacity of its EqualLogic storage arrays, not on the software used to manage them. While improvements to 10Gb (from 1Gb) and 768TB (from 540TB) are significant, the [i]real[/i] news in my humble opinion was again in the software.

I've done a bit of research on Windows 7 Enterprise to discover some of its new features and to uncover its secrets. From what I've seen so far, [URL="http://www.microsoft.com"]Microsoft[/URL] has provided some interesting Linux-esque features that might accidentally boost Linux adoption as a side effect. The two primary features to which I refer are 7's ability to natively use [URL="http://www.linux-mag.com/id/7598"]virtual hard disks[/URL] (VHDs) and the easy to add on UNIX-compatibility services and applications. Once Windows 7 users get a whiff of those UNIX utilities and their power, the Linux sell is easy. To enable these utilities, one only has to …
