Linux Articles listed under "USB Virtual Machine Emulation"
Here, we show you how we booted from a USB Flash Drive in VirtualBox. This process will allow you to run your Portable Linux from the USB Flash Drive or external hard drive while still running from Windows. By default VirtualBox does not support USB Boot. However this is easily attainable by mapping a virtual machine to the USB Drive.
Portable VirtualBox was an unofficial Portable Wrapper for VirtualBox, created by Micha. An improved version is currently being offered by Tibo, the author of the LiLi USB Creator. VirtualBox is officially a product of Oracle. It is an emulator or virtual machine that can be used to run various Operating Systems via Disk Images, ISO's and CD/DVD's as a guest OS from within another Host Operating Environment. By using Micha/Tibo's portable wrapper, VirtualBox can be stored and run entirely from a USB device.
