|00:01||Welcome to the spoken tutorial on Installing VirtualBox in Windows Operating System.|
|00:08||In this tutorial, we will learn how to download VirtualBox and install it on Windows OS.|
|00:18||This tutorial is recorded using: Windows OS version 10,|
|00:24||VirtualBox version 5.2.18,|
|00:29||Firefox web browser.|
|00:32||However, you may use any other browser of your choice.|
|00:38||Before we begin, please make sure that you are connected to the Internet.|
|00:44|| What is VirtualBox?
VirtualBox is a free and open source software for Virtualization.
|00:52||It allows us to install and use multiple OS in the base machine i.e. (host).|
|01:00||The base machine can have either Windows, Linux or MacOS.|
|01:07||To install an OS inside a VirtualBox, the base machine should have the following configuration.|
|01:15||i3 processor or higher,|
|01:19||RAM 4GB or higher,|
|01:23||Hard disk free space 50GB or more and Virtualization should be enabled on BIOS.|
|01:34||This will ensure that the VirtualBox will work smoothly.|
|01:40||In case the base machine has Windows OS, then it should be any one of the following versions:|
|01:49||Windows 8 or Windows 10.|
|01:53||Let's start the installation.|
|01:56|| To download the latest version of VirtualBox, go to the following link in a web browser.
www dot virtualbox dot org slash wiki slash Downloads
|02:14||I have already opened this url in a Firefox web browser on my machine.|
|02:21||This page displays the link to download the latest version of VirtualBox for multiple hosts.|
|02:30||At the time of this recording, the latest version of VirtualBox is 5.2.18|
|02:39||It could be different when you watch this tutorial in the future.|
|02:44||Now click on the link Windows hosts.|
|02:48||This will download VirtualBox for Windows OS.|
|02:53||The download may take some time depending on your Internet speed.|
|02:58||Important note: Before installing VirtualBox, we have to ensure that Virtualization is enabled on our machine.|
|03:08||Let us verify if Virtualization is enabled or not, in Windows 8 or 10 machine.|
|03:16|| Go to the Taskbar at the bottom left of the window.
Right-click and select Task Manager.
|03:25||The Task manager window opens.|
|03:29|| If you are opening it for the first time, click on More details at the bottom of this window.
Then click on the tab Performance.
|03:40||In the Performance tab, at the bottom right, locate Virtualization.|
|03:46||This will tell us whether the Virtualization is enabled or not, in our machine.|
|03:53||If it is not enabled, kindly enable it in BIOS settings.|
|03:59||As the BIOS settings vary from computer to computer, we cannot show a demo of the same.|
|04:06||If you are not a technical person, kindly do this with the help of a System Administrator.|
|04:13||If the option Virtualization is not available in the BIOS , then we cannot install VirtualBox in that machine.|
|04:22||In my case, it is already enabled.|
|04:26||Now, close the Taskbar by clicking on the x icon at the top right corner.|
|04:33||Let us now install VirtualBox.|
|04:37||Go to the folder where we downloaded VirtualBox.exe file.|
|04:43||Now right-click on the file and select Run as Administrator.|
|04:49||In the User Account Control dialog box that appears, click on Yes.|
|04:56||Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.2.18 Setup window with a welcome message appears.|
|05:06||Click on the Next button at the bottom of the window to proceed further.|
|05:12||The next screen is Custom Setup.|
|05:16||If we wish to change the location of the installation, we can do so.|
|05:22||Click on the Browse button and then choose the desired location for installation.|
|05:29||I will skip this, as I prefer to install it in the default location.|
|05:35||Click on the Next button at the bottom of the window to proceed.|
|05:40|| In the next Custom Setup screen, we can select some features depending on our requirement.
By default, all the options will be selected.
|05:52||Click on the Next button at the bottom of the window.|
|05:56||The next window shows some warning message regarding Network.|
|06:01||This message says that during the installation the Internet will disconnect temporarily.|
|06:09||Click on Yes button at the bottom of the window.|
|06:13||We are now redirected to the Ready to Install screen.|
|06:18||Click on the Install button to begin the installation.|
|06:22||This installation may take some time.|
|06:25||You may get a pop-up window named Windows Security.|
|06:30|| It asks whether we want to install the software.
Click on Install button.
|06:39||Once done, we can see the message “Oracle VM VirtualBox installation is complete”.|
|06:47|| In this screen, there’s an option “Start Oracle VM VirtualBox after installation”.
By default, it will be selected.
|06:58||I don’t want to launch VM immediately, so I will unselect it.|
|07:03||Lastly, click on the Finish button.|
|07:08||Now, on the Desktop, we can see the shortcut icon for the VirtualBox.|
|07:16||Double-click on the VirtualBox icon to launch the application.|
|07:21||VirtualBox application opens. This indicates that the installation is successful.|
|07:28|| With this, we come to the end of this tutorial.
