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
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.
