    If you cannot boot a hard disk install of Knoppix 6.7.1 try the following;
    Start installing to the Virtual Machine and set the machine up until you reach the screen which offers to unpower the installation. Do not power the machine, close it down.
    When it has closed down select "Edit Virtual Machine" and then follow the instructions here;

    Use the Disks and Disk Drive section to change the drive to ide.

    Now complete the installation of the Live CD and the transfer to HDD.
    It should boot normally from the hard disk.

    "Install Knoppix to flash disk" writing hangs out of KVM with knoppix 7.0.2 beta

    i tried this with ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    sudo kvm -cdrom Downloads/KNOPPIX_V7.0.2DVD-2012-05-30-EN.iso -boot d -m 512 -usb -device usb-host,hostbus=1,hostaddr=7

    "Install Knoppix to flash disk" recognizes the memory stick (16GB in size), formats it, and starts writing. the bar goes right before the end, and then it stalls.

    #qemu  -cdrom /store/download/iso/KNOPPIX_V6.7.0DVD-2011-08-01-EN.iso -hda  /store/vm/qemu/knx670_disk.img -m 1024 -boot d -usb -usbdevice  host:0951:1624 &
    Then, run "Install Knoppix to flash disk" in the virtual machine. We could of course have copied the files directly from loop-mounted ISO, but this method allows us to check things

    Also, the purging and installing steps prior to remastering can be carried out in qemu virtual machine sessions, making administrative tasks very much easier.

    I have had success with a simpler command line for qemu (1.1.0), in Knoppix:
    Code:
     sudo qemu -cdrom Downloads/KNOPPIX_V7.0.2DVD-2012-05-30-EN.iso -hdb /dev/sdb -boot d -m 512
    Seems to be something buggy in detailed USB handling in recent qemu versions, but this wholesale "-hdb" way has worked for me. Haven't tried in other distros, as long as Knoppix does the job.. modprobing kvm and kvm-intel and adding "-machine accel=kvm" makes it run much faster -when hardware allows it.

    Have a look at Test CD if your computer has AMD processor.
