Latest version of VSR now boots under VirtualBox

Thought it was worth mentioning in case anyone else has wanted to boot the HP VSR100x virtual router in virtualbox and has found that it doesn't due to a kernel panic then there is a new version VSR1000_7.10.E0321P01 which now works OK.

Although it previously worked using vmware server/workstation this is handy if you also use HCL or GNS3 with Virtualbox amd don't want 2 hypervisors running (has caused crashes for me in the past).

To build the VM I created a new debian guest and attached the HD via the IDE controller rather than SCSI, SAS or SATA controllers, then installed from iso.

VSR can be downloaded from here:
