- The VM has Windows 10 1903 build and Office 365 pro plus installation available and nothing else. You need to install everything else yourself.
- The Windows image download is 12 gigabytes in size (even when compressed). You need a lot of time or a fast Internet connection to download it.
- There is no University of Helsinki customization.
- The first thing you need to create when the VM starts are user accounts. Using the same user account name as your AD user account might help with some things.
- ... or you can use your MS online user account. University of Helsinki AD user accounts do not work for this (yet).
- If you want to create a local offline Windows 10 account, start the Windows 10 VM first without network. Windows 10 installer allows offline account creation only when Internet is not available.
- You are free to create administrator and regular user accounts in the VM.
- You can delete the VM and reinstall it from scratch, as long as you are running only one instance at a time. That is what the license permits.
- The VM can't be transferred to another device (without reactivation) since the activation is tied to the physical device OEM license.
- There is no easy and good way to share files between Windows host and Linux (yet). USB storage stick, OneDrive and Dropbox are probably easiest solutions.
- If you are a staff member, you can request an AD Windows installation instead.
- AD Windows usage instructions apply to these OEM Windows installation too.
You can skip this step, if you already have cubbli-kvm package installed and you belong to the libvirt group.
You need sudo rights to install the required KVM hypervisor. With sudo rights run the following commands to install Qemu+KVM hypervisor and to give your user account access to the installed hypervisor.
