Virtual disks on Virtualbox

Post by leogah » Sun Mar 20, 2022 4:08 am

I'm trying to install the 9.1A FT under Virtualbox (6.1), and haven't yet managed to configure any disks in a way that the VMS installer sees them. They appear as block devices to EFI but VMS doesn't seem to be able to hook up a driver to them.

Any thoughts?
