VirtualBox Vanilla Builds

Ill be retiring the vanilla VirtualBox VDI builds toward the end of September.

The reason is the builds have had a lack of graphics support for some time now so aren’t really workable. I wont remove the builds until they age out automatically however, so feel free to download as needed since the OS still boots and the network will connect.

Special Build deployments with VirtualBox/VMware graphics support will be coming ‘soon’!

      1. Hello Arnold,

        Thank you for your response.

        How is the work going? I hope everything is going great.
        I really want to try a more recent Chrome OS version on a virtualbox.

        Waiting for your release.

  1. Any idea where I can download a VDI build? I just want one .. does not need to be too recent. Perhaps you could keep at least one VDI download until the special builds are ready. Thanks.

  2. Hi Arnold!

    Do I have to set my Virtual Machine to EFI, or should I still use BIOS? I’ve tested the latest build with both, but it wont work, madly. (Or doesn’t Chromium work with Virtual Box?)

    Greetings from Germany!

  3. Hey, I’m a big fan of your work. Enjoy the beer. I will make a shameless plug (not a plea, I know you’re busy) for the new Virtualbox builds. Looking forward to them.

  4. Hi
    What VirtualBox settings would you recommend for running the 27-Sep-2015 VDI on a MacOS 10.9.5 host?

    When I try “Type = Linux/Version = Ubuntu” with all other settings unchanged, the boot freezes after showing
    [ 6.774185] piix4_smbus 0000:00:07.0: SMBus base address uninitialized – upgrade BIOS or use force_addr=0xaddr


  5. Cant we use the .img file to create virtualbox .vdi/.vmdk? I tried but the virtualbox doesn’t recognise it as a bootable medium.
