  • SLED 10 under VPC 2007

    SUSE sees it own hda (Virtual HD)
    But I think SUSE can't see through VPC2007 to see the
    Windows XP Pro NTFS C and D drives.
    I suspect that I'm not the first human to try to access SLED 10
    under Microsoft's VPC 2007
    and attempt to use the Windows HDs (C and D) and a Flash drive

    I' logged in as su and tried

    mkdir /mnt/c is accepted

    rrl:/ # cd mnt
    rrl:/ # ls
    c jump
    cd .. (did this twice to get to
    rrl:/ #
    rrl:/ # mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hda1 /mnt/c is attempted
    mount: /dev/hda1 already mounted or /mnt/c busy is returned

    lsusb reports nothing

    If anyone has done this. please let me know.
    Perhaps I do need to try Virtualbox ?

    You won't get many replies posting it in the VMWare section and not Virtual PC, which BTW is 2 forums up.

    Moved to Virtual PC forum.

      don?t use M$ v-products to virtualise linux

      try virtualbox or vmware ws/server

      also, mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/hda1 /mnt/c will try to mount your first partition on the first virtual hdd as ntfs into the specified dir. how can that connect you to the host machine?

      in order to use the windows hdds, you need to have samba installed, and mount shares over network as smbfs.
