No uefi install in VM
This feels like this question has been asked before, but I could not
find what I was looking for in the mailing list archives.
I installed NetBSD 9.0_RC1 as a guest on VirtualBox 5.2.34 r133883 with
GhostBSD as a host. I enabled EFI and booted from the iso image. I did
follow the "instructions" on creating a gpt partition for efi; however,
when I exit to the menu and point the install target to dk1 (labeled
NetBSD) it just returns me to the menu.
I was able to install with mbr and legacy "bios."
If I install allowing the gpt option to create the EFI boot it fails to
mem[0x0 ... <snip because I don't know how to copy the boot screen from
>> NetBSD/x86 EFI Boot (x64), Revision 1.1...
>> Memory: 640/3684184 k
Press return to boot now, any other key for boot menu
booting Name: netbsd - starting in 0 seconds.
open netbsd: No such file or directory
The ls command is not currently supported for dosfs
If I boot from the iso image again and exit to the prompt I see this:
# gpt show wd0
start size index contents
0 1 PMBR
1 1 Pri GPT header
2 32 Unused
64 262144 1 GPT part - Windows basic data
# dkctl wd0 listwedges
dk0: some-dashed-number, 262144 blocks at 64, type: ntfs
dk1: some-dashed-number, blah, type: ffs
dk2: some-dashed-number, blah, type: swap
I am sure I am doing something wrong or am not understanding something
correctly. Perhaps a friendly pointer, or a link to help me on my way?
90% of my problems are due to ignorance, the other 10% is because I just don't know any better.
