Exclamation Run XP from USB or SDHC w/ Virtualbox? - 07-08-2009, 03:31 PM

I've searched and have come up empty handed. I currently have OSX 10.5.7 and run XP SP3 on virtualbox for when i need to use XP. however im running out of room on my SSD and was wondering if there is a way to run the virtual boot of XP from a flashdrive or SDHC?

Thanks in advance, I only ever use XP to datalog and tune my car, and am trying to find a simple solution.

You can move the hard disk VDI file to the SD card (or USB drive) and point VirtualBox to the new location. That should be it.
