MobaLiveCD - Runs Linux Live CDs Inside Windows

Posted by ClifNotes, Oct 2008, permalink Virtualization Software

 

I recently tried the MobaLiveCD program. It's pretty great for trying out a live linux CD without having to burn a CD or boot outside of Windows. Surprisingly, it seems to work well, but is a bit slow at times.

 

It's a simple 1.4mb download and you only need to save it somewhere to use it. No installation is needed.

 

After you have Moba downloaded, you can go out and download Linux live CDs as ISO files. Normally you'd have to burn the ISOs to a CD in order to try them. Now you can simply run Moba and point it at the ISO file. The ISO will boot the Live CD in a Window for you to try out.

 

I found that it's not limited to running Linux live CDs. I downloaded a copy of FreeDOS live CD ISO file and it worked fine.

 

Quote from the website

MobaLiveCD is a freeware that will run your Linux LiveCD on Windows thanks to the excellent emulator called "Qemu".

MobaLiveCD allows you to test your LiveCD with a single click : after downloading the ISO image file of your favorite LiveCD, you just have to start it in MobaLiveCD and here you are, without the need to burn a CD-Rom or to reboot your computer.
