Windows VM
« on: June 28, 2015, 08:30:17 PM »
Soo...here's a weird issue and I'm dead serious...lol
So if you are installing Windows 10 as a vm, you may get an error:
"Windows cannot read the product key from the unattended answer file"

To fix that, go into the vm settings, and disconnect the floppy drive. Then it'll run the set up. lol...
I only post this because I was trying a bunch of complex shit and that simple thing fixed my problem.
This was done on Fusion Pro 7

Thanks Ch3rn - what a random solution.. sometimes it's the simple thing aye.

I haven't tried Windows 10 yet, and i'm using Parallels, but i'll keep this in mind when the time comes

This floppy disc controller?:

"VENOM, CVE-2015-3456, is a security vulnerability in the virtual floppy drive code used by many computer virtualization platforms. This vulnerability may allow an attacker to escape from the confines of an affected virtual machine (VM) guest and potentially obtain code-execution access to the host. Absent mitigation, this VM escape could open access to the host system and all other VMs running on that host, potentially giving adversaries significant elevated access to the host’s local network and adjacent systems."

Haha, fusion/workstation aren't vulnerable ;) But you vbox users are
