Windows 10: Dual booting inside a VMWARE Virtual Machine.
Finnish but not finished
I think you missed one point, although I admit the point was well hidden in between the lines
Dual boot means that both operating systems have direct access to each other's disks. This in its turn means that if and when I set up a virtual machine to dual boot with another vm, I only have to have one vm running to move data between them. Much faster than running both virtual machines simultaneously and moving data over the network.
Not too often needed feature but an important one.
Some of us are virtualization freaks like me, or just interested in finding out what's possible.
Dual booting on physical hardware, I have one OS running. Running a vm I have two operating systems running at the same time on same hardware, visible on same displays. Having that vm set to dual boot, see my reply to Jimbo above.
As I said it was more out of curiosity to see if it was possible.
The only advantage I can see is that you can share data between the installs without having to resort to external drives or other virtual drives. And only one vm to backup.
OK - I agree about the networking bit -- copying data between 2 VM's on same physical host goes through Network - seems to use the PHYSICAL wi-fi network rather than internal "Virtual NIC" even though both VM machines are on the same Host. I should get 1 Gb transfer but instead get network wifi speed --still OK where I am but it shouldn't really send data over the "Real" wi-fi" adapterr !!!!
(Using "Local Host" networking fixes that problem - but then I can't access the VM's from the rest of the network !!.
I am running windows 10 and using hyper-v have created a virtualized windows 7 Pro 32bit machine. I need 32 bit for some older software that we are running.
When I connect up to the virtual machine using the hyper-v manager, everything runs fine...
As the title indicated, anybody tried running both successfully on Win 10?
I've seen people doing that on Win 8 forum( Solved Hyper V and VMWare on the same machine - Page 2 ), so I'm wondering if this method would work on Win 10...
An easy way of creating a W10 VM (or any other OS) of your RUNNING machine is simply to start up the VMWARE CONVERTER. You need to be in administrator mode.
Configure the target machine, - unclick DATA drives if you just want to start...
I have 3 computers -- one Linux HOST and two W10 HOSTS. I have a number of VM's usually using BRIDGED mode but my W7 VM only seems to work when it's using NAT.
Now in NAT it only sees the HOST machine on the network. It can't see any...
trying various VM's on a HOST W10 under VMWARE WORKSTATION 10 -- (XP / W7 / W8.1 / W10 / Linux ) -- all these fail to start network either in BRIDGED or NAT mode.
If the HOST is now a W8.1 system connections all work for these...
