I am having a problem installing xubu 13.10 as a VM in KVM, but running as live disk in 'virtual box' seems to work good. So I guess I will go ahead for now and run 13.10 as VM in virtual box, but I have a question regarding the installation: when the install gets to the part that inquires about on what disk to select there are 4 options. The first offers to "erase disk and install Ubuntu" and the last allows the user to do "something else" as shown in this link:
I created the virtual disk 'xubu13-10.vdi' on partition 'sdb7' so I assume the first option, "erase disk and install Ubuntu" refers to 'sdb7'. When I select the "something else" option, only 'sda' is listed, and I cannot seem to select anything else, like sdb and sdb7 in particular. This looks sort of scary since I do not want the install to do anything on 'sda' whatsoever.
The confusion for me arises from the fact that when I last installed xubu, 10.04 I think, that 4th option to do "something else" allowed the user to manually select the partition on which to install, allowing one to be crystal clear about where xubu would be installed. I guess if someone could just verify that the first option, "erase disk and install ubuntu" will erase only the partition, sdb7, I selected when setting up the 'vdi' then I am set to go.
