I tried to run Whonix in Live Mode on VirtualBox 6.1 on Win10 but it will either warn me that it can still write on the disk or crash immediately…
I can change the .vdi with VBoxManage to
immutable but it will still get
Live mode is enabled but it is still possible to write to the disk.[…]
When I try to change it to
readonly, VBoxManage will output
VBoxManage.exe: error: Cannot change type for medium ‘C:\Users\X\VirtualBox VMs\Whonix-Workstation-XFCE\Whonix-XFCE-184.108.40.206.3-disk002.vdi’ since it has 2 child media
VBoxManage setextradata Whonix-Workstation-XFCE “VBoxInternal/Devices/lsilogicsas/0/LUN#0/AttachedDriver/Config/ReadOnly” 1
will work but crash the VM on startup with details:
Failed to construct device ‘lsilogicsas’ instance #0 (VERR_PDM_CFG_MISSING_DRIVER_NAME).
Also updated and upgraded everything.
