VBox Problems

Post by FrankN209 » Sun Sep 23, 2018 10:34 am

On my Nuc, I have two HDD's. The second is for storage and such. I want to use this hdd for my vbox .vdi. But when I go to search for it through vbox, my secondary hdd isn't listed. Is there a way I can add this?

I'm using Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon

To add another virtual hard disk, or a CD/DVD or floppy drive, select the storage controller to which it should be added (IDE, SATA, SCSI, SAS, floppy controller) and then click on the "add disk" button below the tree. You can then either select "Add CD/DVD device" or "Add Hard Disk". (If you clicked on a floppy controller, you can add a floppy drive instead.) Alternatively, right-click on the storage controller and select a menu item there

Hope this helps
