    I would like to run Honeycomb in the Sun Virtual Box as guest system under Windows7. I run other systems in vBox, but could not really find anything regarding Honeycomb (or even Gingerbread). Did anybody try that already and give me hints from where to get the .iso etc.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Well, I did not get Honecomb working in vBox. But I managed with Froyo following this nice tutorial.

    I made one little change though that I recommend. Where he shows the first installation screen and recommends to use "Vesa mode", I used "Install x86 to hard disk" (last option). That gives you a permanent installation.

    Now I am looking for vBox Guest Additions for Android, but did not find any yet.
