Virtual-machine

Fri May 05, 2017 9:03 pm

I am trying to set up a virtual box to do the initial setup of the raspberry pie but i keep having issues with windows 10 saying the img file is corrupt. I am trying to mount the .img file as a virtual drive which i could then point virtual box to use as a drive. Its just maddedning that it keeps saying its corrupt. I have compared the sha1 and it matches.

QEMU can emulate some ARM CPUs you need to Google for how to emulate a Raspberry Pi.

Virtual Box emulates x86 CPUs which is useless as the RPi does not have that CPU Architrcture.

If you are just trying to set up an automated setup for building a scripted customised Pi setup have you looked at PiBakery.? Probably covers most needs
