In this article, we will examine the steps to create a new VM on the Oracle VM VirtualBox installed on the Windows 10 operating system.
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.
NOTE: You can also create a new virtual computer with VirtualBox 6.0.4 on your Windows, Linux or macOS computer by following the steps in this article.
How to Build a New Virtual Machine to Install a Windows, Linux Operating System
When you create virtual pc according to the operating system you will install in VirtualBox program, after typing the name of the operating system, the system type automatically determines in the version section and the hardware adjust according to that system.
To create a new VM, open the VBox program and click on the New button as shown below.
If you are going to run the operating system in this window, type the name of the operating system and select the operating system version from the version. Then click the Next button.
The VirtualBox RAM size for the operating system you are going to install is recommended. If you want to increase the amount of RAM, you can increase this value. If your computer has 8 GB of RAM, you can choose 4 GB for trial purposes here.
In this window, if you have previously created a Hard Disk, you can add it to the program by selecting Use an existing virtual disk file and selecting the location of the file.
If you are creating a VM for the first time with VBox, you need to select Create a virtual hard disk now as shown in the following image.
After the settings in here completed, go on by clicking the Create button.
In the Hard disk types window, VDI (VBox Disk Image) is selected by default. We will explain the differences between the types of hard disks in our later articles.
Select the VDI format selected by default for VM performance and click Next.
We are the most important step in creating a VM in Oracle software. Because the setting you choose here will significantly affect your performance.
If you select Dynamically allocated, disc creation for the VM will not take much time and your disk will be created immediately. During an operating system setup, the virtual hard disk will automatically increase in size if your virtual machine needs a disk.
If you select Fixed Size, it will create a disk of the size you want and at a location you specify. As we mentioned before, the setting here will increase your machine performance.
For Windows 10 VM, you can change the disk size in this window, and you can improve performance by installing it on an external hard disk or SSD.
In this article, we are saving the VM disk file to an external disk.
Once you have set the Oracle VBox VM installation location and disk size, click on the Create button.
The disk is being created for the VM.
Disk creation may take some time. Once you have created the VM on VirtualBox, you need the ISO setup file to install the Windows 10 operating system on it. You can download your computer from the bottom of the article.
To specify the ISO file, click Settings on the VM.
In the Microsoft Win VM settings window, click Storage.
Click on Empty in the Storage area and select the Win10 ISO file location by clicking on the right-hand side.
Select the Windows 10 ISO file.
When you select the ISO file for the VM, it should look like the following image. Click the OK button to close the window.
You can now install Windows 10 on Oracle VM VBox …
