I was experiencing problem when trying to install Check Point SecurePlatform firewall in VirtualBox for the first time. The error message was
Input/output error during read on /tmp/hde
No Drives Found
An error has occurred – no valid devices were found on which to create new filesystems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem
By default, VirtualBox will create a SATA hard disk for each virtual machine. Since the Check Point SecurePlatform that I’ve installed didn’t have a driver for SATA yet, therefore we need to create a IDE hard disk image for this.
