[openflow-discuss] Floodlight Virtual Machine Image not booting

Can you check that the disk in the VM is set up as IDE (not SATA).

We haven't used VirtualBox much internally and when I set it up just now,
it defaulted the disk to SATA, which won't work.

VirtualBox works fine for me now with the latest vm.
