Where can I get the os.vmx and os.vmdk files?

Postby Reavus on Wed Oct 14, 2009 9:04 am

Hi,

I'm trying to run linux in windows and the way I have gone about doing this is to install VMware and do funky stuff with some of the files and changing directories and whatever. Problem is the website that was telling me how to do this says I need these os.vmx and os.vmdk files to do it.

It tells me I need to go to some Wolphination website to get it. The thing is you go there and it doesn't exists. I can't find anywhere else that lets you download it without any hassle. Ive googled a bit and can't seem to find the stuff I need.

Does anyone know where I can get these files?

If those are the correct file names, then a search in windows or in Linux will no doubt locate them

os.vm

sorry Reavus , i can't help you with those files,
but as someone who has used both i would recommend Virtualbox over
Vmare by a wide margin.
