Hello,
i'm currently trying to set up windows xp via virtualbox on android 2.3.4 MIUI ( HTC HD2 EU). I've SDL installed, image created with virtual box, but the image has a *.vdi extension. And it seems that SDL can't handle this. Any idea to convert VDI2IMG?

Update(06/29/11):
- Testing some more ms operating systems...
- images now created with QEMU
- Sorry for the screenshot quality (HTC Touch 2)


!HELP WANTED!

I didn't think XP or 2000 would run in an ARM processor environment?

Sent from my HTC HD2 using XDA Premium App

Here is the answer: yes and no :( i have to modify the configuration, maybe it works after that correctly.

And... it's just an emulator like vmware but for android and wm devices ...and it should work! :)

So Windows 2000 displayed the spash screen as shown in the attachment, but then BSOD :(

Edit: screenshot attachments moved to 1st post
