Installing the Host OS (Part 2)
Now that we have our Slackware host VM partitions set up, why not use that as a template for the LFS hard drive…to do so, shut down the VM (just type poweroff at the linux command prompt) and we’ll clone it:
In the VirtualBox VM Manager right-click on the Slackware VM and select Clone from the drop-down menu
Select Full clone and click Clone
Right-click on the newly created clone and select Show in Explorer from the drop-down menu
Drag and drop the Slackware Clone.vdi onto your desktop
Now that we’ve got our cloned VDI, right-click on the Slackware Clone VM in the VirtualBox VM Manager and select Remove from the drop-down menu and then select Delete all files from the combobox
Now rename the Slackware Clone.vdi on the desktop to something more appropriate, like LFS.vdi (we’ll attach it to our VM after we get our Slackware host installed.
