Virtual Machines

MineOS (any variant) should be able to run just as effectively on virtualized hardware as it does actual, physical hardware.

Here are a few of the more well known Virtualization software suites and step by step instructions in getting them configured ideally for MineOS:

  1. Virtualbox - download
  2. VMWare Player - download
  3. VirtualPC - download
  4. Parallels Desktop


Para-virtualization should also likely work out-of-box, but such a setup requires much to much knowledge of virtualization for me to realistically refine into a tutorial. MineOS Turnkey, for example, is based off Debian, which makes its compatibility contingent on how well Debian (and additionally the Turnkey team) maintained and support paravirtualization (which is to say, very well)
