install Cloudera VM on top of Windows8.1/ubuntu14.04 dual boot lenovo g50 laptop

New Contributor

 hi, I have a windows8.1/ubuntu14.0 dualboot laptop that  is based on hard-drive partition. I want to install the cloudera Quickstart VM on top of this dualboot laptop either the windows os or linux os. I tried window OS. I downloaded Oracle virtualbox and install it on window OS and then Create a cloudera VM in Virtualbox. It halts when I try to start the VM. Is there a way I can still do Cloudera VM either on Windows partition or Linux partition? Virtualbox or VMware or LVM? Thank you very much! Sheila

These VM (Virtualboz, vmware or LVM) images required atleast 4+GB RAM. That mean After installing VMWare or Virtualbox by default image will take 4 GB. Before running VM you need to change RAM according to your system requirements. Refer official requirement document for more http://www.cloudera.com/downloads/quickstart_vms/5-5.html

Thanks for the reply. I already give 8GB RAM to the VM. I am guessing the problem is I might not be able to install Cloudera VM on an already harddrive partition dual-boot machine. I am thinking about buying a new hard drive and install Windows 8.1 in it. So When I need, I will install that internal hard drive and it is pure windows OS. Then, it should not have problem anymore.
