There are several methods offered to install Haiku. These include Vmdk images, Raw images, Iso images and Anyboot images which are a hybrid of the latter two images. The Raw image is a preinstalled environment, in which the Virtual Hard Disk size cannot be customized, but going through the installation process is not required.
<div class="box-warning">Haiku isn't working fully with Parallels Desktop yet as only the Raw and Anyboot images work and that is after following a workaround. Be sure to follow the workaround instructions on renaming the files.</div>
<h5>Parallels Desktop</h5>
Parallels Desktop is available for free (14 day trial version) or for $80 (full version) on <a href="http://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/">their website</a>.
<h5>Anyboot</h5>

There are several methods offered to install Haiku. Among those, only the vmdk and the iso methods are suitable for running Haiku easily on VMware Fusion. Basically these are the two methods that will be shown in this guide. The easiest of all is utilising the vmdk which is already properly configured.
<div class="box-info">Running Haiku from a VM image is recommended to avoid any possible problems. Unless it does not work, or you would like to simulate an actual installation, do stick to this method.</div>
The required files can be found at on the Get-Haiku page of this website which is located <a href="http://www.haiku-os.org/get-haiku">here</a>.Both the vmdk and iso are available there, do select the closest mirror to enjoy higher transfer rates. Verify using the checksums to make sure that the downloaded files are not corrupted as they are big files. VMware Fusion is available for free on their website which can be found <a href="http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/">here</a>.

<div class="box-info">Running Haiku from a VM image is recommended to avoid any possible problems. Unless it does not work, or you would like to simulate an actual installation, do stick to this method.</div>
The required ISO file can be found at on the "Get Haiku" page of this website which is located <a href="/get-haiku">here</a>. VMware Player is available for free on their website which can be found <a href="https://www.vmware.com/products/player/">here</a>. There is also VMware Workstation, which is similar but has more features and is commercial. This means you have to pay for this version, but it does offer a 30 days trial. However you could just stick to the free one <em>(VMware Player)</em> as you most likely will not need the extra features. You can both read about the commercial version's extra features and download it from its website <a href="https://www.vmware.com/products/workstation/overview.html">here</a>

VM is an ideal way of testing operating systems without having them physically installed. Installing Haiku into VM is a solution for those who don't want to set it up into a physical computer.
There are several methods offered to install Haiku. These include Vmdk images, Raw images, Iso images and Anyboot images which are a hybrid of the latter two images. The Raw image (and thus the Anyboot image) is a preinstalled environment, in which the Virtual Hard Disk size cannot be customized, but going through the installation process is not required.
In this guide the Haiku operating system is being run under virtual circumstances using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, KVM, and Virt-Manager; but you can use any distribution of Linux that supports KVM.
In this guide, we have used ISO and Anyboot/Raw images. The required files can be found on the Get-Haiku page of this website which is located <a href="http://www.haiku-os.org/get-haiku">here</a>. Both the ISO and anyboot images are available there, do select the closest mirror t

<h1>Step 1: Downloading Haiku</h1>
<p>You can <a href="http://www.haiku-os.org/get-haiku">download</a> either the iso image or the anyboot image which is a mix of the iso image and the RAW image and can directly be used as an HDD, i.e. it does not require installation.</p>
<h1>Step 2: Downloading QEMU Manager</h1>
<p>QEMU Manager is a utility that provides an easy to use GUI for QEMU emulation under Windows. You can get it at <a href="http://download.cnet.com/Qemu-Manager/3001-2094_4-75451507.html?spi=fb88a2603e492d463567103495318be9&dlm=0">CNET Download</a>.</p>
<h1>Step 3: Installing QEMU Manager</h1>
<p>Installation of QEMU Manager is just like installing any other software, you follow the usual procedure and click Finish in the end to complete the installation.</p>
