MATRIUX KRYPTON :INSTALLATION STEP by STEP

This screen cord gives a step by step installation in virtual box starting right from choosing the .ISO and configuring the machine.The default password for root is "toor" without quotes.

VIRTUAL BOX : SOLVED - FAILED TO OPEN HARD DISK ISSUE

1. I had been an avid follower of VMWARE until recently wherein I have shifted my loyalties to VIRTUAL BOX....simple,easy....and the best part is that it is OPENSOURCE.One problem that I often used to face was that when I copied a VDI file from one place to another...it used to give me a message as shown in the screen shot below that said something like " Failed to open the hardddisk F:\....\.....vdi.So I used to keep trying ways and means but that remained unsolved.But there is a single command line solution to this that goes like this...(also shown in the screen shot).Goto the command prompt first as administrator.













Goto the folder C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox by typing

c:\>cd C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox

and then type

C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox>VBoxManage.exe internalcommands sethduuid "h:\path to the vdi folder\yourvdifilename.vdi"

and this should give a message similar to this 

UUID changed to: 3cfa288c-9e91-42e2-acdc-9821ab9d4aab


(CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE)

thats it...now open...u should not get the message!!!

The Brain Virus : Some thing I missed.....


This is about BRAIN virus...a name heard in the late 80S and early 90S and recognized as the first computer virus for MS-DOS that infects the boot sector of storage media formatted with the DOS File Allocation Table (FAT) file system....This was written by two brothers, Basit Farooq Alvi and Amjad Farooq Alvi who were from Lahore, Pakistan......so what makes a mention here is that I was recently watching a TED Video wherein the speaker Mikko Hypponen shares his interesting piece of interaction with these two brothers...do watch it...worth it for inviting a smile...
