Guest OS management

Guest OS management

I am using GRUB to bootload a barebones VM designed around Intel's virtualization technology. I am able to launch a VM from the VMM. This Loads a very simple guest OS application.How do I load a true guest os, ie Linux, tinycore, etc? Does the guest os image have to fit in a continuous memory region? Can it be broken up to fit in multiple memory regions that are not continuous?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

The guest OS does not have to be physically contiguous. EPT/VT-d tables can be setup to take care of guest physical to host physical mapping.
