I've followed your instructions but unRAID is "unable to connect to localhost" after it loads:
1. install unRAID on a virtual hard drive
I created a new IDE hard drive for an existing "Win 8.1 Pro"-VM with 1 GB size stored into a single file named "unraid_test.vdmk"
within Windows I created a new FAT32 partition named "UNRAID"
I copied all unraid files to this partition
I executed "make_bootable.bat" (the f option was already included)
2. start unRAID from virtual hard drive
I created a new VM named "unraid test" with os "Other Linux 4.x or later kernel 64-bit"
I used virtual disk type "IDE" and used the existing virtual disk file "unraid_test.vdmk"
I started the VM and selected to boot in "unraid OS GUI mode"
within the booting procedure it showed the following messages:
waiting for /dev/disk/by-label/UNRAID (will check for 30 sec)....
after 8 seconds:
random: fast init done
random: crng init done
Cannot find device "bond0"
Then the login window appears. I login as "root" without password and it shows the firefox browser for the url "localhost" and saying:
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.
I went back to the Windows-VM in order to check if the label of the partition/volume is wrong but it is still "UNRAID".
Do you know what the problem is and how can I solve this?
Thanks in advance!
