Configuring and running the AX 2012 Hyper-V image with VirtualBox


A while ago I started setting up the AX 2012 virtual box in my laptop. It took me a few days to download and have everything ready to start setting the machine up. However, when I finally found the time to install it, I got a few errors on virtual PC . As a result I was unable to boot the machine successfully due to a file corruption error.

The following is a link that helped me out in fixing a few issues.

A few days later I found a video (below) that explained on how to install AX 2012 Hyper-V using the Oracle VM. After following the video (really easy to understand) I was able to successfully run AX 2012 VM on my computer.

NOTE: You will need access to partner source to download the AX 2012 VM files.

Check it out

Take care!
