VM Ideas


Post by ExTruckie »


I thinking about to install XigmaNas within a VM running on a Linux box.

First of all, is this possible?
Second, if so how would I go about installing an embedded to start at boot?

Or would it be better to use the VM within XigmaNAS to run Linux?

I am open to suggestions.
My current hardware specs are in my signature.

Yes it is possible. Is it a good idea? :) The real question is, what are you trying to accomplish. If you just want to set up a lab, then install the hypervisor of your choice and virtualize everything.
