The purpose of this white paper is to illustrate how to create a Fully-Virtualized Guest (Hardware Virtual Machine) from an OS ISO image on Oracle Database Appliance Virtualized Platform. Besides hosting paravirtualized guest systems Oracle Database Appliance can also host fully virtualized guests. This means that you can run any Operating System that is supported by the OVM Version that runs on your Oracle Database Appliance. The whitepaper describes how to install a fully virtualized guest on Oracle Database Appliance. We begin to outline sample installations of CentOS 6 and Microsoft Windows, thereafter we will discuss some of the potential changes to the configuration.
