How to Configure Virtual Machine in Oracle VM VirtualBox

Before installing a operating system with the Oracle VM VBox virtualization program, we need to create a new VM.

Creating the virtual machine with Oracle VM software is the most important step. Because the disk structure and size are important. For example, if you plan to install Windows 10 system, you should first create a new VM after you open VirtualBox.

Steps to create a VM with VBox are quite simple and easy. We recommend that you always choose Fixed in the Disk structure options with any virtualization program. Because you will get more performance increase than the operating system you will install. Especially if you install on a USB 3.0 external disk or SSD disk, you can get even more performance.
