You can install VirtualBox tools on any Windows 10 operating system. The tool above is a free hypervisor that is used to build virtual machines and virtual networks.
Please note that you must have an ISO file to install the operating system on the virtual machine. Follow the steps below to do this.
1. If you are running a 64-bit operating system and plan to install a 64-bit operating system on the virtual machine, you must enable the HAV feature in accordance with the instructions outlined in the previous section.
Next, go to www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads and select the VirtualBox platform package to install on your computer’s operating system. Click the install file and accept the default settings to have VirtualBox installed on your computer. After installation and implementation of the above software environment will be as follows.
3. To build a virtual machine using VirtualBox, click on New in the toolbar and then follow the steps that the wizard shows to install the virtual machine. Choose a name such as VM1 or VM_Lab_A for the virtual machine and select the Windows operating system installation option. Accept the default settings.
4. When the virtual machine is in the selected state, click Settings in the VirtualBox Manager main window. In the Settings pane, in the left pane, select Storage.
5. Click the tree option to the right of the Controller: SATA expression in the middle panel and select the Add optical drive icon. Icon that looks like a CD with a positive sign.
6. Dialogue appears. Select the Choose disk option. Select the location of the ISO file that contains the operating system installer files. Now select the ISO file, click the Open button, and then click ok. The window will now return to the main window of VirtualBox Manager.
7. Click the Start option in the toolbar. Your virtual machine runs and the process of installing the operating system begins. Configure the settings as needed to install the operating system on the virtual machine.
8. To make sure that Windows installed on the virtual machine is able to connect to the Internet without any problem, open the browser.
VirtualBOX Virtual Machine Simulator Installation Tutorial
In this tutorial series, which is a series of virtualization tutorials, we will also learn how to install and install VirtualBox software.
The software, known as Oracle VM VirtualBox, is an open source virtualization software for computers with 32-bit architecture developed by Oracle Corporation.
The software can be installed on Linux, Macintosh, Solaris, Open Solaris and Windows as the main virtualization software.
For some guest operating systems, there is a suite of software packages and hardware drivers that generally improve performance, especially graphics.
- Run 64-bit operating systems (hardware simulation is required)
- Snapshots (Backup version of Virtual OS in case of trouble)
- The Seamles Mode property that runs parallel applications for simulated software alongside the main host desktop applications.
- Shared clipboard memory between virtual operating system and host system
- Shared folders between virtual operating system and host operating system
- Special and proprietary tools and drivers for quick switching between systems
- Command Line Interface (in addition to the main GUI)
- General APIs (Java, Python, SOAP, XPCOM) to control and execute virtual machine settings
- Paging memory for AMD-V and Intel VT processors (only for SLAT support processors)
- Limited support for 3D graphics accelerator (including OPENGL3.0 and Direct3D 9.0c through Wines Direct3D translation into OpenGL)
- SMP support (use 32 virtual processors per virtual machine) from version 3.0
- 2D accelerator property
- EFI support for version 3.1
Features of Memory Cache Emulator
- Support for SATA, NCQ, SCSI and SAS raw disks and partitions
- Supports SSDs
- Supports CD / DVD / BD disc readers for playing audio discs, burning and burning data on them and even encoded discs
- Ability to disable host system input / output cache
- Restrict inputs / outputs
- Image encoding of virtual machine disks with AES128 and AES256 algorithms
Memory Types Support:
- Raw Disk Access – Allows access to the primary or host drive’s partitions on the virtual machine
- Support tracing and converting popular VMware (VMDK) software disks with VirtualBox
- Support for Microsoft VHD technology
- Supports QEMU disks
Features added in version 5.0 onwards
- Parallelization between Linux and Windows operating systems to improve time and performance.
- Support for USB3.0 controllers – Support for Windows 7 and later with kernel 2.6.31 and Mac 10.7.4
- Mouse-drag and drop feature in Windows, Linux, and Solaris operating systems
- Encrypt virtual machine disks via free extensions.
- Save USB data traffic
- Virtual machines can be separated from a running GUI and run in a backdrop environment.
- Low data rates from and to USB ports
- Although it is a free and open source application, some of its services are still available through binary and commercial versions.
- USB3 does not support older Windows operating systems such as Vista and XP.
- Mac OS X Special Packages are not available right now.
- Extra packages of older operating systems based on Windows 9x (Windows 95,98, ME) are not available due to poor graphics performance.
- EFI support for each OS is very limited.
- Only older versions of Directx and OpenGL are supported (via the 3D Acceleration option for each virtual machine)
- Graphical memory is limited to 128 MB (currently supported for 2D up to 256 MB).
