Additional Virtualization Discussions
i tried it, but starting the wipe cdot stopped with PANIC
See The Solution
I've never seen any claim that it's supported on Virtualbox ?
From the download page software requirements:
It works just fine on my VMware workstation install ...
I hope this response has been helpful to you.

not really helpful, but nice to see that you are fine with the vmware solution.
Some people have restrictions on their workstations to not use vmware and for me i do not see any reason why it should not work on virtualbox like the other versions.
Would be nice to find someone interested to get the cDOT 9 working on virtualbox 🙂
thanks for your reply
done, by changing RAM Size to 6000 MB, now startup and wipe is running, let's see if this is stable solution 😉
if anyone is intrested in that...
6gb should work, so should 3.5gb. Its due to subtle differences in the memory map between the two virtual platforms. If you have more, give it more.
You may find it panics again when you go to 9.1. If so, add serial ports to the vm:
#If these are missing it can get stuck
vboxmanage modifyvm "$name" --uart1 0x3F8 4
vboxmanage modifyvm "$name" --uart2 0x2F8 3
While you're at it, the ioapic setting is often missed:
vboxmanage modifyvm "$name" --ioapic on
Then boot to the vloader and set the console variable:
setenv console vidconsole,comconsole
Then it should come up.
