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:
01:47 Windows 7,
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.
