If you like to start learning/Evaluating the new vs2012 ALM, this is a great virtual machine( Visual Studio 2012 Application Lifecycle Management Virtual Machine and Hands-on-Labs ) and can save massive hours for you

However if you prefer VirtualBox and try avoid using Hyper-V server like me, there are a few tweaks need to be done

  1. When added the VHD file in VirtualBox, don’t start the vm right away, change the hard drive from SATA to IDE controler
  2. Stop the time sync to host in VirtualBox by the following command: vboxmanage setextradata “<YourVM>” “VBoxInternal/Devices/VMMDev/0/Config/GetHostTimeDisabled” “1”
  3. The first time booting may take a little longer since system is installing the driver, and in case I forgot the login password for all accounts are: “P2ssw0rd”
