 +=== Using the Image === 
 + 
 +The image should autologin, but if needed the username is cig and the password is cig.  The image does not allow any connections from the network. ​ Sudo apt-get install <package name> to install ubuntu packages. 
 + 
 + 
 +=== Shared Folders === 
 + 
 +Shared folders allow easy movement of files between your operating system (host) and the CIDER virtual machine (guest). These instructions will help you set up a shared folder. 
 + 
 +First, it is important to have a folder on your host already created, as VirtualBox'​s interface does not support folder creation. 
 + 
 +Open the VirtualBox application,​ highlight the CIDER virtual machine, and open its settings (in the top-bar ''​Machine -> Settings''​ or by clicking the gear icon). In the list of tabs, select //Shared Folders//. Right-click //Machine Folders// and select //Add Shared Folder//. 
 + 
 +In the pop-up, click on the arrow next to //Folder Path// and select //​Other...//​. This should pop up a file navigator. Navigate to and select your folder on your host machine. Be sure to also check the //​Auto-Mount//​ option, and hit //OK//. 
 + 
 +Now it's time to start the CIDER virtual machine. Let it boot up, then open a terminal (''​Ctrl+Alt+T''​) and type in: 
 +  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dkms 
 +and wait for it to finish. 
 + 
 +Next, go into VirtualBox'​s topbar and select ''​Devices -> Insert Guest Additions CD Image...''​. A window may pop up asking to run the CD. ''​Close''​ or ''​Cancel''​ that window, and, back in the terminal, type: 
 +  cd /​media/​cig/​VBOXADDITIONS_4.3.28_100309 
 +and then 
 +  sudo sh ./​VboxLinuxAdditions.run 
 + 
 +Wait for the command to complete, then poweroff and restart the virtual machine. You should now have a working connection between your computer and the CIDER virtual machine. The guest folder will be at ''/​media/​sf_<​your host folder name>''​. 
 + 
 +Optional: If you want the guest shared folder to appear on, for example, the desktop, open a terminal and run (replacing the brackets with your folder name): 
 +  ln -s /​media/​sf_<​your host folder name> ~/Desktop 
 + 
 + 
 +==== Troubleshooting ==== 
 + 
 +=== VirtualBox VT-x/AMD-V Error === 
 + 
 +If, when starting the CIDER VM, you see a pop-up similar to: 
 +>"​**VirtualBox - Error:** VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration is not available on your system. Certain guests... require this feature and will fail to boot without it. 
 +>//​__Close VM__// //​__Copy__//​ //​__Continue__//"​
  
-  - Click on start to launch ​the image: {{:​software:​aspect:​screenshot_from_2015-06-19_19_59_11.png?nolink |}}+Most likely, this means that you do not have hardware support for virtual machinges enabled in your BIOS (firmware ​on the motherboard). To enable it, you will need to edit your BIOS settings.
  
 +Starting your BIOS interface requires holding down a button while your computer starts up (i.e. if your computer is already on, you will have to restart it). Usually, while your computer is starting, there will be a prompt to press a button to enter the BIOS, though if your computer boots quickly, it may be hard to read. Some common buttons to hold down are: Esc, Del, F10, F12, and Enter. If you have trouble accessing the BIOS, try looking on your manufacturer'​s website for instructions.
  
 +Once you are in the BIOS settings, you should look for the virtualization setting, sometimes called //​Virtualization//,​ //Intel Virtual Technology//,​ or something similar. Try looking under a //​Security//​ or //Advanced Options// tab. If you are able to find the setting, make sure it is set to enabled. Then save & exit, and restart your computer. You should now be able to run the virtual machine with VirtualBox.
