Well I am now fully happy! I have just migrated all my work stuff to Devuan 3.0 and the helpful people suggested virt-manager but no guidance. I am not quite sure myself how I managed to do it but Qemu (with the front-end Aqemu) has been able to convert my .vhd into an .img - couldn’t get it to run in Aqemu directly but have done so with virt-manager - the difference is unbeleivable.
- The graphics looks like Winidows is running on native hardware, more so than VB and no memory allocation needed for Graphics!
- It can be set to launch each time the host is started - Yay!
- The mouse pointer can easily move from VM Desktop to real desktop - no more pressing of the right Ctrl key!
My Christmas present has come real early!
