I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 on a USB flash disk and found this askubuntu question. However I am stuck at the part of the KVM. I am supposed to type this command at the terminal
sudo kvm /dev/sdb -cdrom ~/.cache/testdrive/iso/ubuntu_natty-desktop-i386.iso
I tried installing kvm using
sudo apt-get install kvm
However on running the command to install ubuntu, I get the following message.
`open /dev/kvm: No such file or directory Could not initialize KVM, will disable KVM support
I also get this a QEMU terminal
Starting SeaBIOS (version 0.5.1) Booting from hard disk.... Boot failed: not a bootable disk Boot from floppy .... Boot failed: could not read the boot disk Booting from CD-Rom.... 23MB medium detected Boot failed: Could not read from CDROM (code 000c) No bootable device
On running the command,
egrep -c '(vmx|svm)' /proc/cpuinfo
I get an output 0. This means that my computer does not support hardware virtualization.
Intel Core 2 Duo 1.83 Ghz, 2 GB Ram, Intel Graphics Card
Please help. I'll update the question as I get more info.
