How to run AX 2012 HyperV on VirtualBox

In order to run the AX 2012 Beta VPC, it usually requires HyperV, or attaching the disk locally.  This is a great solution I was told about to run it locally.

The basic idea is you just create a virtual machine, mount the three *.vhd's, and start it.  This blog post highlights two important caveats that you will come across.

  1. If you use the "Create new virtual machine wizard" and check the box to use an existing disk, it defaults the VHD as a SATA controller, which will result in the attached blue screen error over and over.  You need to attach all three disks as IDE controllers
  2. Sharepoint apparently doesn't work without adding to the hosts file
This is the blue screen I kept hitting over and over...very frustrating before seeing this blog post for the solution.
