HOWTO: Run a Linux Live CD ISO Inside Windows
Posted by Luigi on May 28, 2007
Too impatient to burn your iso image file to a CD and try your newly downloaded distro? here’s a not-less-than-1-minute howto to run your Live CD inside Windows. :)
“not-less-than-1-minute” = assuming you have downloaded and installed all necesarry files.
Here is the originial link: http://www.lifehack.org/articles/technology/beginners-guide-run-linux-like-any-other-program-in-windows.html
Here is my summarized version:
2. Open the file named OS.vmx (VMWare Configuration File, 1Kb) with notepad.
3. On the line that says “C:\Your file” change it to point to your linux live cd iso file. For example, mine is D:\OS\pclinuxos-2007 since i copy pasted my file to where i extracted the OS zip files.
note: do not delete the double quotes when you edit the file
4. Now click on OS.vmx to start your “live cd booting”.
5. Have fun. :)
