is there a possibility for having a host system without gui (e.g. ubuntu server) and have a windows 7 guest fully working? The guest system should not be working in headless mode, I need a full windows 7 as guest.
I ve a feeling, that you need some window-manager for this, is that right?
When I start cinnamon and open a shell and type
vboxmanage startvm win7 everything works fine
When I switch to tty2 and write
vboxmanage startvm win7
VboxManage: error: The virtual machine 'win7' has terminated unexpectedly during startup because of signal 6 VboxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component MachineWrap, interface IMachine
When I'm on tty2 and I do
export DISPLAY=:0 and start the vm via
vboxmanage startvm win7 then
Waiting for VM "win7" to power on...
with a blinking cursor
When I now press alt+ctrl+F7 for switching to tty7 the vm starts like a charm.
Has anyone an idea what I can do to get it working without switching ttyx?
