Ticket #598 (closed task: wontfix)
Boot Helper Virtual Machine

|Component:||Sugar on a Stick (SoaS)||Version:||Unspecified|
We have computers in computer labs at Schools and we want each student to have their own Sugar, with their Journal and their data.
One way to accomplish this is to install some variety of virtual machine that works like the Boot Helper CD. That is it starts the boot but it looks to the USB for identity and files.
Currently for our Boston Pilots we need this for.
I am listing this as a blocker because if we could get this to work it would be a huge step towards getting kids using Sugar at the GPA School. http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/GPA
Note that in this case we have access to the machines so we can manually install anything. We do not necessarily need the same solution for both OSes. We don't necessarily need one-click easy install.
Also note that the student Mac Laptops do not have parallels software. Teachers do, but the new student laptop cart does not.
