Does anyone else have problems running windows 2008 with Sun Virtual Box?

We get an error when we try installing Framework 3.5 SP1

No, and a little more explanation of what you want help with would be beneficial. – squillman Oct 1 '09 at 15:09
I've been using it for only a few months so I don't have any issues. Could you specify an issue/problem you have with it? If not, are you looking for recommendations? – osij2is Oct 1 '09 at 15:10
Did you the .NET 3.5 Framework first or are you trying to install SP1 first? – osij2is Oct 1 '09 at 15:25
Install of .net 3.5 Framework also fails – Shiraz Bhaiji Oct 1 '09 at 15:35
What's the error you're getting? – squillman Oct 1 '09 at 15:36

I didn't have any problems with Server 2008 on VirtualBox and had no problems getting it current with updates either.

Thanks, it does not fix the problem, but it confirms that it is not Virtual Box that it is causing the problem – Shiraz Bhaiji Oct 1 '09 at 19:02
