Hi William.


Are you using the hammer filesystem?  I have seen the debug screen in virtualbox when using hammer fs, you might want to try ufs.  If not I can probably send you my config for virtualbox with dragonflybsd running on windows 7.

Hello Úlfar

And thanks for you ideas.  I have imported Turnkey (core) VM which is a base ubuntu linux.  It appears to work well enough.  Though the network adapter may have an issue with my firewall. :-D

I have attached a screeen shot of the Fault I observe when booting from the ISO image. 

As mentioned, my aim was to use the ISO as a install CD.  Was that a false presumption?

I know about he MS virtualisation.   It is a buy-out of someone (vmware?) .. I want to rely on an open source option.  (I'll gracefully side-step the oracle thing.  You may note that LibreOffice has taken the OpenOffice repository 'away' from Oracle? for example).

I'm not in that much of a hurry.  I can wait on a stable dragonfly that is virtualbox or successor /alternative friendly.  For now I thin there is something simple wrong with my approach or the way I've (assumed) the virtual box and the iso files interact.

Try installing a small linux distro or live linux distro from a iso image.  If they install and run with no problem than you can rule out virtualbox and windows xp as the culprits..   I would also try virtualpc from microsoft a free virtualisation product that you can download from microsoft.com.
