Hi, I got it working in VirtualBox by downloading the Redox harddrive image while using some Linux live cd to copy it on the disk device (with dd). Also please use SATA AHCI, PIIX3 chipset and PS/2 mouse with 1GB RAM (and maybe PAE). OS type Other/Unknown 64bit.

Hi, I was able to get Redox working in VirtualBox by following the 2nd answer in this StackOverflow q:

And I have also got it working in qemu following the instruction in the book:

Hope this helps. :smiley:


Is there an ISO I can download?

There is but it doesn’t work in Virtualbox for me. The quickest way is probably to use the solution in the stackexchange link provided by @retrocoder68 .

It seems like I have to compile it or something according to what I saw.

Is there a precompiled verison of an ISO image?

No you don’t have to compile anything.
In the link posted be @uranixcz you can download a file that can be used to create a Virtualbox machine.
Download this zip file, unpack and follow the stack exchange answer.
