BackTrack 4 on Windows Machine

As I mention on the “Some Updates About MySelf” I will update my blogĀ  more frequently. Today, I want to talk about BackTrack4.

Backtrack is a lovely Linux distribution for security professionals. BackTrack4 is now using debian deposotories and that makes it nicer for me.

If you want to run BackTrack on your windows machine, you can use LiveCD or a virtual machine.

Only virtual image I have found was for VMware. VMPlayer is not best solution for a windows machine. Ram and cpu usage goes up and machine can be so slow. However Virtual PC 2007 runs smoothly.

If you get BackTrack VMware image from this link and could not find an image for virtual PC, don’t worry. Install VirtualPC 2007 from here.

Then go to this website and get the VMDK converter. This program will convert VMware images to virtual PC’s virtual hard disk image.

Use ‘letmein’ as your username and ‘bugmenot’ as your password ( Yeah, I don’t like to set up an account either!)

After unzip the directory and start program, you convert BackTrack 4 image to Virtual PC’s hard drive.

That is it!

Ask any question or problem you have.
