    I am currently using the process described in the link below

    https://tails.boum.org/doc/first_steps/manual_usb_installation/windows/index.en.html

    to install my Tails 0.15 OS on one of my 32 gigabyte memory sticks (which hasn't been encrypted by Truecrypt yet). Now if I were to encrypt that entire USB thumbdrive using the Hidden Volumes method (one Decoy outter volume and one Hidden Volume) is there a way in which I can install the Tails within the Hidden Volume? I cannot select the right USB drive on Step 3 for the Universal USB Installer to install Tails within the Hidden Volume. I guess I would have to first install Tails on the USB stick and then copy and paste Tail's USB files onto my Desktop. Then I will encrypt my USB stick and finally I will copy and paste the Tails USB files onto the USB's Hidden Volume. If that doesn't work, what do you guys suggest I should do?

    Lastly and most importantly, how will I run Tails from within my USB's Hidden Volume on Oracle's Virtual Box VM? I can't set Virtual Box correctly to run Tails from an USB thumbdrive.

    The final result I am trying to achieve is this:

    Tails (stored within the Hidden Volume of my encrypted 32 gigabyte USB) running inside Virtual Box.

    Help is greatly appreciated and have a merry XMas.
