Introduction To Virtualization On Virtual Box | Virtualization part #1

Let’s get started…….

 A . Setting Up The Virtual Machine

2 . Open virtual box, following screen will come up.

3 . Click on New button to create new virtual machine. Following screen will come up. Type the name of your virtual machine and select its version and hit next.

4 . Select the memory ( RAM ) according to your need or system specification. Hit next.

6 . Now you have to select the type of hard disk you want to create. If you don’t know about virtual hard disk then go with the default option.

7 .  Now you have to select storage on physical disk. Virtual box basically gives you two option – i) Dynamically Allocated ii) Fixed Size

  • Dynamically Allocated  It means that you don’t have fixed size and your hard disk size will automatically increase according to your need till the selected size.

For example if you have created hard disk of 40GB and installed windows 7 which fairly takes 20GB so in the beginning only 20GB will be occupied on the hard disk not 40GB. Size will go on increasing automatically  according to the need up to 40GB.

  • Fixed Size – As the name tells, if you have created 25GB hard disk you will only have 25GB hard disk.

8 . Now the select the size of hard disk according to your need. Click on Create button.

9 . Now a screen will come up showing the details of your virtual machine.
